Iranian online journalism in the new Nieman Reports

The new issue of our older sibling Nieman Reports is out. While it isn’t as tied to the Lab’s subject matter as the last issue was, it does feature some great reporting about Iran, and that includes pieces about how Iranian issues are covered online.

There’s a piece by Kelly Golnoush Niknejad, founder of Tehran Bureau, and another on censorship of the Iranian blogosphere. Check out the whole issue.

Joshua Benton is the senior writer and former director of Nieman Lab. You can reach him via email ( or Twitter DM (@jbenton).
