Robert Fisk?

by Mehdi Mazloom on

Agha Darius. I am utterly shocked. It seems, every foreign journalist is forced out of the country - YET Mister Robert Fisk, the father of all western journalists still reports freely from Iran. Walks among the protesters, and the Basij un-hindred. He climes to be reporting the truth

Can anyone explain why Fisk enjoys such unprecedented privilages,other journalist could only dream of.
