Guest Host: Rebecca Sheir
Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian has been held in an Iranian jail for the last ten months on charges of espionage. His trial began this week behind closed doors at the order of a notoriously harsh judge–and was almost immediately adjourned, with no indication of when it might resume. Guest host Rebecca Sheir explores his case and freedom of the press – or lack thereof- in Iran.
