NYT: The visas for many of the foreign journalists in Iran are expiring this week, depriving the world of independent sources of information about the violent protests that erupted after the disputed presidential election.

Larry Kramer on The Daily Beast says the media can profit from Twitter’s big week, Jack Shafer on Slate says we shouldn’t get carried away about Twitter’s role in Iran’s demonstrations.

YouTube is still blocked in Iran.

WEST WING REPORTAGE

Fox News anchors are responding to comments that President Obama made in an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood earlier this week- “I’ve got one television station entirely devoted to attacking my administration,” Obama said. “You’d be hard-pressed, if you watched the entire day, to find a positive story about me on that front.”

Steve Doocy: “Look, we are just balancing things out. When you watch the other channels, the news channels, it’s all — you know, you don’t hear a lot of the criticism.” And Greta Van Susteren on her blog: “I don’t think the President is afraid of Fox – he is a very smart and tough man – but I do think he holds a grudge. There is a huge Fox audience that he represents since he is the President of all Americans.”
