Inside Story, with presenter Sohail Rahman, discusses with guests: Jan Keulen, the general director of the Doha Centre for Media Freedom; Steven Murdoch from the University of Cambridge; and Martin Bentham, the home affairs editor of the Evening Standard newspaper.

This episode of Inside Story aired from Thursday, July 7, 2011.
