This time, Adam Baxter, OFCOM's standards executive, has decided
"Given the broadcaster's assurances that both Sakineh Ashtiani and her son willingly participated in this programme, we considered that the context was not materially misleading so as to cause harm and offence,"
Have you ever come across a more clueless and stupid executive than Adam Baxter? Who on earth would take Press TV's assurance that Sakineh and her son, Sajjad were willing participants in the program? Did Adam Baxter go to Iran and interview Sakineh and Sajjad himself? If they were so willing, then why were no foreign reporters allowed to interview them?
And how can Adam Baxter accept such assurance, when Maziar Bahari, held and tortured in Iran after last June's protests, has already referred Iran's Press TV to Ofcom after it sent a journalist to cover his interrogation in prison?
