How long do you think a pro Iranian television channel would last in the US? Less than 10 seconds would be my guess
(Sulaimaniyah, Iraq) International media watchdog groups called Wednesday for the release of a freelance journalist jailed in northern Iraq for violating a public decency law by writing a story about homosexuality.

I really do fail to see much difference between western MSM and Press.TV except that the Iranian government is open about owning that particular outlet, whereas know one will tell us just how beholden to Murdoch et al our governments are for their kindness in burying news they don't want to be widely disseminated.

Disinfo? for pointing out the hypocrisy of a man who funds and controls the news coming out of his country complaining that the news coming out of other countries is manipulated by those governments?
Notice, I never once said that the west wasn't doing any media manipulation, merely pointing out that ahmadinejad is the pot, calling the kettle black.

I live in Britain. I can honestly say that there isn't a single news outlet here that is calling for war with Iran.
On the other hand, I've seen four different documentaries on Iranian culture on BBC4 in the last few weeks. The first one was interesting, but I haven't watched the subsequent ones - it would be nice to hear about a different country for a change.
In the UK, the media is staffed by the left, and the left loves Iran and hates Israel. It really is that simple.
