Iranian TV reporter Maya Nasser is killed while on air by Syrian rebel sniper in Damascus

Where are the condemnations? Where is the outrage at the murder of a journalist? Silence from Washington. Full text at link.

Iran’s Press TV claimed its Damascus correspondent was killed Wednesday by a rebel sniper while reporting on bombings in the Syrian capital. Two car bombs struck the Syrian Army’s command headquarters, setting one of the buildings on fire. Maya Nasser, a 33 -year-old Syrian national, was killed while reporting from the scene, Press TV said. Hussein Murtada – Press TV’s Damascus bureau chief and head of the Arabic-language Al-Alam TV network – was also reportedly injured in the attack.

Nasser never hid his identity, and frequently debated political opponents on his Twitter account. Though he was threatened on the Web more than once, he was remembered as always being fearless about his work.

For that matter, not much regard for freedom of speech involved for Press TV either when they took the channel off the Sky tv EPG listing so the point of view of Iran could less easily be heard by ordinary people watching their televisions.

No sign of that happening for fox news though! :-(

I doubt we will hear much from the "Innocence of Muslim" film crowd crowing about freedom of speech when it comes to the right not to be shot dead while on air and reporting on the attacks by Western backed terrorists trying to tear a country apart and then to be shot by the same terrorists. No they will likely twist the story and make out the victim is the terrorist using their doublespeak
