I'm trying to really understand censorship if what this comment on this picture is saying is really true.

"Our Iranian-American guide told us that even though each newspaper is essentially the mouthpiece of a political party, and despite some government censorship, there is still a far broader range of opinions to be found in Iranian newspapers than there is in the mainstream newspapers in the US (because there are far more viable parties than in our two-party system).

Interesting, n'est-ce pas? "
