  • Al-Alam TV (Iran)

  • Nabaa TV

  • KafMedia (Iraq)

  • LuaLua TV

Today, we are once again facing the new round of application of the Overton window approach regarding freedom of speech.

Washington has consistently been moving towards this unprecedented step.

At first, disinformation campaigns, discrediting and blackmailing of independent media became the norm. Further, the persecution of journalists and editors became the common practice. Further, the Americans used to introduce personal and group sanctions, freezing ( in other words ‘stealing’) individual funds of undesirable persons. Further,  there were arrests and even kidnappings of those who went beyond the American agenda. Realizing their impunity, the White House started to block the independent media and objectionable news agencies. The Big Techs, controlled by the White House, began to scour the information space from content that, according to Washington, could pose a threat to the promotion of the interests of the American elites.

Since the above measures did not bring the desirable results, the Americans decided to take the next step and completely block domains of its ‘ foes ‘.

Thus, today, we can proclaim the death of global Internet.

This is a signal to the whole world and an open declaration of US imperial dominance.
