This is what CNN didn't want to report....It's an Outrage (videos)
youtube ^ | JUne 13, 2009

Posted on 06/14/2009 5:55:19 AM PDT by nuconvert

How many tens of thousands of people marching in protest does it take for CNN to acknowledge that it's happening? The Iranian people are outraged at the lack of coverage by CNN. The Iranian people need publicity about their plight and desire for a Free Iran in order to topple the regime. Iranians were shouting in English: "We Want Freedom".

If it isn't reported, who will know?

Remeber, CNN admitted during Saddam's time that they didn't make reports because they were afraid they'd be kicked out of the country. Apparently, they haven't changed.

It would really be cool if we had people in the streets screaming “we want freedom” right here.

Let me be the first -— Obama’s jive talk caused the Iranian dead. Folks Iran has been a military dictatorships ever since Jimmy Carter gave it to the Mullahs.

Iran is not Muslim, it's Persian.

there are huge obstacles in place against freedom all over the world, including the USA.

The media is the biggest.

They are not to be trusted. It is imperative individuals continue to seek their info from as wide a variety of sources, so as to avoid being told what to think by the CNN’s or the NBC’s of the world. These organizations have some sort of sick perverted view of freedom and do all they can to prevent freedom from spreading

"Iran is not Muslim, it's Persian"

Iran is not ARAB, it's Persian would be the proper context.

Iran is 99% Muslim, the country's official name is The Islamic Republic of Iran.

How many tens of thousands of people marching in protest does it take for CNN to acknowledge that it's happening?

CNN will notice and report on the following:

One Republican trashing another Republican

Five Gay Men Protesting anything

Six Members of NOW complaining about any conservative

Eight Blacks angry with cops

Thirty Union Members picketing a company

Here's the groups that "don't make the CNN cut":

1,000 democrats criticizing one corrupt democrat

400,000 tea party protesters

A million Iranians bravely standing up to their oppressors.

I have been hammering this same message for years. The MEDIA IS NOT AMERICA’S FRIENDS. The media honestly thinks they can control our country, our lives and our destinies with their thirty second sound bytes and constant conditioning of what they (the media) thinks matter.

Think about this, there are over 135 countries and over six billion people. Now think about the news we get fed to us on a daily basis.

oh, no they wouldn't. Obama is president now, everything is rosy and happy news......they would NEVER allow theOne to look bad. I grant you that if Bush were still president, they would be all over this blaming him for the unrest.

Reporting this would not fit the story they are trying to tell. You must remember, Great Leader made a speech in the mideast recently and that speech has changed everything. Riots in Iran do not continue the story they are telling. Now I just realized something - I mentioned ‘Great Leader’ - excuse me while I take 15 minutes of silence to revere his great floating-above-the-world-as-a-god aura. Oooooooommmmmmm...

No. I like Fox News but their F&F doofuses are talking about foam rubber butt improvers and talking about 30 seconds per hour about news, iran included. It's disgusting and actually embarassing if you think of Fox as an actual news station covering what's actually happening in the world.

They may have been beaten into it but at least CNN is covering it and had a-jobs speech where he rationalized jailing his competitor.

Fox was covering, BBC covered and I don't have the video link handy but while one BBC reporter was talking the police tried to take him out and protesters(rioters actually)rushed the police and made them back off. Lots of videos on twitter(actually youtube but twitter has links) of the violence and the chants.

For CNN not to cover destroys what little credibility they had but it didn't stop the news from getting out, thanks to cyberspace! Even though the Mullahs cut off twitter, they thought, some Iranians were able to get through, plus some used the internet. Power was cut off in Tehran for awhile but restored and I think cell phone use has been turned back on. More protests scheduled for tonight(when ever that is in Iran, having trouble with the time difference:))

One of the candidates, Koutabi, does that sound right?, is declaring the election void, not that he has anything to say about it but it is interesting he would stand up and do it.

More than embarrassing. I watched an hour or so of Fox & Friends yesterday. I hadn’t seen it in a couple of years because the morons on it were so offensively shallow and stupid I couldn’t stand it. Guess what? They fired them and got a NEW set of morons even MORE shallow and stupid.

Actually if any of you read Mousavi's statement you will see he strongly supports the Mullahs idea of the Islamic Republic. In other words he is no better than Imanutjob except his rhetoric is toned down slightly.

What chills the bones of the Mullahs is the chanting last night by many Iranians, "We don't want an Islamic government!", in English. I doubt if the majority feel that way but many do.

Until they throw off the Islamic Republic, which took the country from the Shah in 1979 with Carter's help, they will have rigged elections and primaries.
