While Nancy Pelosi, the first ever female Speaker of the House, and her fellow total control Democrats babble unconvincingly that they're not about to revive the (Un)Fairness doctrine for news, authorities in Iran, the very ones the Democrats want to negotiate with, have their own Fairness For Them Doctrine on the news.

Iran's top security body has ordered local journalists not to report on problems caused by petrol rationing, a day after its surprise introduction.

Hardline papers have advised motorists not to use their personal cars too much and to share vehicles in order to save petrol.
