Intelsat in U.S. & Canada Removes Iranian Channel PressTV

Pro-Israel media activist group HonestReporting Canada welcomed news on Saturday that global satellite communication provider Intelsat had removed Iran’s state-funded propaganda mouthpiece PressTV from its broadcast platform in Canada and the United States. The NGO expressed its concern, however, that PressTV is still accessible over Intelsat's Galaxy 19 platform.
