June 25, 2009, 0700 GMT — Here is a revealing interview from Al Jazeera’s new media guy with YouTube’s head of news and politics, Steve Grove.

Some of these issues regarding YouTube and media from Iran were discussed in my interview from June 22, 2009 with IT security expert, Ariel Silverstone. That is here.
