An alternate view of the Iranian elections

Post by Popov on Tue Jun 16, 2009 2:36 am

hey,

so the iranian elections are front page news right now, and the struggle for democracy at the moment there is beautiful - 85% voter turnout really says a lot about a people... but - check this article out, apparantly it's not so black and white - even if Moussavi's supporters are the minority though, would be cool to see them oust the incumbent

cause all major news corps are run by influential people with money - people who's interests are often reflected by their press - i'm not saying theres no free speech - but the big news sources - major newspapers, tv news programs have an agenda, and the small ones are oft overlooked
