"Press TV, Iran's English-language news network, available through broadcasts and the Internet, has been reported to be a very popular news source among the people and even journalists of Afghanistan. According to local reports, when Press TV became available on cable in Kabul and various provinces, Afghan officials and ordinary citizens welcomed the international network as an alternative, more credible news source. The country's media regularly consults Press TV's website to access daily news that are more in tune with the public preference, say media officials. Meanwhile, Afghan President Hamid Karzai is reported to have told a private gathering he tunes in to Press TV's news reports and that he finds them more reliable and enlightening than other English language sources." Press TV, 8 March 2010. Press TV is in English and has no Pashto and/or Dari output.
