روزِ گذشته خبری روی خروجی خبرگزاری مهر قرار گرفت که در آن، یکی از ناشرانِ نامآشنا و محترمِ کشور از ضرورتِ راهاندازی شبکهٔ تلویزیونی کتاب گفته بود. بسیاری پیش از این دربارهٔ اهمیت تلویزیونِ کتاب حرفها زدهاند و پس از این نیز سخنها خواهند گفت. کما اینکه فشارها بر سازمانِ صدا و سیما این سازمانِ...Read more of this blog post »
