Good ol BBC, Breaking News: Michael Jackson taken to hospital

Good to see they've got their priorities!

Will keep checking!

There isn't even a banner on the CNN website, was it on the TV?

That wouldnt make much sense. The military would coup against Ahmedinejad or the Ayatollah? Unless the Iranian military is surprisingly Western minded I doubt they would coup to replace what is essentially themselves with themselves.

I've seen that on Reuters for a few days now, I don't think it has just happened.

Agree - Country is far from divided, like MSM media is giving us to believe here. I think this is just a psy-op to spread this kind of false information out... Maybe there is some aranged "coup theathre" in its way, from where Iranian officials dont want any reports.

I think Iran is far from any real coups. Army is well funded and gets lots of respect from public and Ahmadins government - why in the earth rhey would want a coup?

Ok, what the snip is wrong with CNN.

There better be a coup going on, otherwise I think i'm going to have to not watch them during prime time again.

Still nothing on their web page, but they have updated their breaking news section to reflect that Michael Jackson had a heart attack.

OOOHHH that's got me interested!

Maybe there is something afoot!

Maybe a massive crackdown Tiananmen Square style.

God help the decent folk of Iran if this is it.

It's not being reported here in Germany. CNN International over here has a giant yellow banner about Michael Jackson.

We'll just keep checking on it, part of me wants you to be right, the other part of me fears for the people of Iran if it is true and fails, or even worse, succeeds. Lets hope the military is on the side of pro democracy, and isn't looking to install a military junta.

Well check this out, dated today:


“It is difficult to say which revolution is greatest in Iran at the moment. Senior Iranian commentators are saying this morning that a military coup is under way,” says Sperling, Politiken’s Reporter and Commentator on International Affairs, who covered the Iranian presidential elections for Politiken and who returned to Denmark from Teheran Monday.

Just a tought from yesterday...

State Dept. issues Iran travel warning

WASHINGTON, June 24 (UPI) -- U.S. travelers now more than ever should avoid Iran in the wake of violent election protests that have gripped the country, the U.S. State Department says.

U.S. officials warn American travelers that both international and internal communications have been interfered with by the Iranian government, including text messaging, cell phones and the Internet, ABC News reported Wednesday.

The State Department also says that Westerners in Iran have at times become kidnapping targets in southeast Iran. It warns that even those with dual U.S.-Iranian citizenship are not immune to detentions and harassment, saying that Muslims who have converted to other religions are subject to arrest, the broadcaster reported.

ABC said 10 other countries that have recently come under State Department travel warnings include Uzbekistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Mali, Chad, Nepal, Lebanon, Yemen, Georgia and Sudan.

Between Jackson and Faucett we wont see any real news for days.
