I believe some did, every anchor or channel has fans. But if you want to know the youths' idea on him, I can tell you that he is not a very likeable figure in Iran among students or youngsters. He was loved among exiled Iranians in LA or the US. And some old generation guys (over age of 55 liked him a lot).
I believe, the Iranian youths need education on the values of freedom and democracy. The LA based TV stations should be like classes for the people inside of Iran. I have never seen those channels trying to teach some thing good to the Iranian people. All they use is coarse language against any one who is against them.

Iran has the military might to deter attacks against it, Defense Minister Ali Shamkhani said, after President George W. Bush said he would not rule out military force against Iran over its nuclear program. 'We are able to say that we have strength such that no country can attack us because they do not have precise information about our military capabilities due to our ability to implement flexible strategies,' the semi-official Mehr news agency quoted Shamkhani as saying on January 18, 2005.

The United States has rebuffed pleas to join a European diplomatic drive to persuade Iran to give up any ambitions to add nuclear bombs to its arsenal, U.S. officials and foreign diplomats say. For months, Britain, France and Germany have hoped to improve their bargaining power with the Islamic republic by involving Washington in a proposed accord over an end to its uranium enrichment activities.
