I agree with your comments and assessment above, and I appreciate your efforts on this subject. You're doing a great service for forum participants.
It's no surprise the media is not covering the events in Iran. They have a vested interest in demoralizing the US populace so that Bush foreign policy will fail. Insuring that failure, brings their socialist fellow travelers closer to power in the U.S.
May God in heaven damn our subversive media players to hell.
Keep up the good work.
Here's a section from Afshin Molavi's book on the US Media in Iran.
Afshin Molavi's Persian Pilgrimages: Journeys across Iran's review can be found at the link below:
From Afshin Molavi's book "Persian Pilgrimages"
*Afshin attends anti-US, anti-Israel rally in Iran*
The hard-liners attracted a small audience, no more than one hundred people trivial in comparison to the thousands of students who regularly agitated for freedom of the press and democracy. Several young bearded men in black shirts stood atop a stage, passing around a blue loud speaker.
"Death to America" he yelled.
"Death to Israel!" he yelled.
A number of foreign journalists stood in the crowd. For every three demonstrators there was one foreign based journalist.
One student on the edge, a young man in sunglasses approached me as i jotted notes. "Are you a journalist?" He asked.
At first, he was friendly. He thought i worked for an Iranian reformist paper. When he found out i worked for a Western newspaper, he became agitated and angry. "You Western journalists record these fanatics on camera, and then you show them to the world and the world thinks we are all fanatics. It is not fair!" He walked away, huffing.
I Second That!
It seems the way the media reports it isn't what people from Iran who are here tell you. I believe the Persians over the media which seems to be leaving out an awful lot of news that doesn't fit their agenda.
