American VoicesOpinion ISSUE 48•50 Dec 11, 2012

With YouTube banned there since the disputed election of 2009, Iran recently launched its own video-sharing website called “Mehr” (the Farsi word for “affection”), which only shows government-approved video clips. What do you think?

  • “Anything will be better than the huge disappointment that is Iranian Pornhub.”

  • “Wow, I can’t believe the domain ‘Mehr.ir’ was still available.”

  • “You know, it would probably be a good thing if our government banned YouTube, too.”
