On one hand, Iran wants its own citizens (and enemies) to believe that it has COVD-19 under control, and yet on the other hand, it wants gullible and kind-hearted westerners to believe that its people are dying in droves because of the evil Americans.
Over the years, E. Michael Jones has established himself as a booster for the ayatollahs who have murdered thousands of Iranian citizens since the 1979 revolution.
Iran has been threatening Americans, murdering soldiers and civilians and plotting terror against the U.S. for years. But as CAMERA noted in The Daily Wire, many news outlets have chosen to ignore or minimize the Islamic Republic's behavior and agenda.
A recent Washington Post editorial faulted Israel for defending itself against Iranian proxies in Iraq.
A New York Times story about Iran is also a story about a newspaper that's lost any measure of self-restraint when it comes to the small, Jewish country that dominates its attention.
For more than forty years, press and policymakers have been misreading the Islamic Republic of Iran. In four decades, The Washington Post, for example, has gone from comparing regime founder Ayatollah Khomeini to Gandhi, to presenting a regime apparatchik and 9/11 truther as a "moderate."
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei might have a soft white beard, but the New York Times shouldn't to confuse him with Santa Claus. In his desire to dominate neighboring countries, the Iranian leader has contributed to the destabilizing of Lebanon and other Arab states.
Is PBS doing its due diligence or offering itself as a mouthpiece for an Iranian propaganda campaign? The Iranian regime’s PR campaign to avoid Western sanctions is aimed at neutralizing criticism of Iran’s crimes, including its leaders’ hate rhetoric and eradicative threats against the Jewish state. A recent NewsHour report seemed to be echoing the same message.
After reporting yesterday that "Iran has never threatened to attack Israel," the Associated Press' unfortunate clarification today casts those very threats as a matter of Israeli perception, as opposed to reality.
The Washington Post in particular seems to have lost the plot, giving a platform to the leader of an Iranian-backed regime that targets journalists even while it condemns Khashoggi's alleged murder.
