One reporter's experience in an Iranian prison

In the video above, Brian Stelter talks with Maziar Bahari, who spent nearly four months in an Iranian prison, about his experience in 2009 and about the recent arrests of several journalists in Iran.

Here's how Stelter introduced the segment:

A Washington Post correspondent, Jason Rezaian, is in government custody in Iran. According to The Post, he is the "first American journalist known to have been taken into custody in Iran since 2009."

He was arrested on Tuesday evening, along with his wife, Yeganeh Salehi, who is a reporter for a newspaper in the United Arab Emirates. Two photojournalists are also apparently being held.

But that's just about all we know. I checked in this morning with Marty Baron. He's the executive editor of The Post. And he said he still has not received any information about Rezaian's whereabouts, his condition or even why he was detained in the first place.

There has been a long history, unfortunately, of reporter arrests in Iran. And Maziar Bahari knows that better than anyone. He was a reporter for Newsweek magazine in Iran when he was detained in 2009. He was jailed for almost four months. He wrote a book about his experience that Jon Stewart made into a movie. It's called "Rosewater," and it's going to premiere later this year.

    I have about 4-5 sites that are outdated and not used. I have a new blog @ blogspot and I would like to forward those domains so they show up on the blogspot address. How do I go about doing this? My domains are hosted by GoDaddy and are blank at the moment. I had originally forwarded them to another hosting company but they never built the sites..

    I was just seeking this information for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don't rank this kind of informative websites in top of the list. Generally the top sites are full of garbage.

    Can I just say what a reduction to seek out someone who really knows what theyre speaking about on the internet. You definitely know the right way to deliver an issue to mild and make it important. Extra people need to read this and understand this facet of the story. I cant consider youre not more standard because you definitely have the gift.

    Today I watched complaints about information concerning Robin Williams death. One minute later there were complaints about transparency in Ferguson Missouri. Five minutes later there were complaints about civilians being killed on Gaza. And Iraq. Instead of taking responsibility for our part in these conflicts or doing the journalistic job, there is more interest in spin. The US govt seems to do the same thing- let us sit down and reason together, but just in case you can't figure it out because of all the spin, we can identify the bad guys. Is this any type of journalism?
