The Muffle

The BBC has had their Farsi language satellite service jammed - the jamming source pinpointed to Iran. The BBC Persia's phone lines have been jammed too - "The number is not in our network", says the recording. has been brought down by Denial of Service attacks. And now Andrew Sullivan's blog is under attack as well. The desperate attempts by the powers that be in Iran to muffle any news are becoming more substantial as their hold on power becomes more tenuous.

update: Sullivan says now they've determined his blog is not being attacked - merely swamped by readers trying to get updates.
