Media Lies on Iran Exposed

In light of today's BBC News reports on the Iranian celebrations of the Islamic Revolution -- which were so shockingly one-sided as to be ... er... shocking, the following piece is of great interest.

Just a couple of cherry-picked whoppers from the BBC's TV piece tonight:

1. The reporter admits the Twitter entries cannot be verified and says we cannot report them without verification: HAVING JUST REPORTED THEM!

In the previous demonstrations evidence came out that much twittering originated from America and Israel: a clear case of Neo-Cons/Zionists trying to twist the news reports.

2. Ahmadinajad was shown saying "if we wanted to make nukes we would" and it was intimated as a threat. Actually he was stating that they weren't making nukes. Only the spin put on it by the BBC made it sound in hindsight as though he were threatening to make nukes.

Anyhoo - here's the interesting piece:

AP Pulls Iran Nukes Story After Antiwar.com Exposé

via Antiwar.com Blog by Eric Garris on 2/9/10

Associated Press issued a story yesterday (Monday) entitled “Iran moves closer to nuke warhead capacity.” It was full of inaccurate and misleading information implying that Iran had admitted trying to enrich weapons-grade nuclear material.


The story appeared on a wide variety of media.

Last night, Antiwar.com news editor Jason Ditz issued a story refuting the AP story.

This morning, Associated Press recalled the story without explanation and replaced it with another, much less inflammatory story written by a different author.

It is important to question the mainstream media and not let them get away with helping the warmongers with their agenda.
