The Late Shah & The Leftist Media

I was thinking where the leftist Media are today when it comes to Iran and its political prisoners and hunger strikers?

Well, back in the 1970s the very same media which, now, do not have the gutts to criticize the mad mullahs for fear of losing their offices in Tehran and their privileges now, were able to go to Iran and interview the late Shah of Iran and question him on the status of so-called political prisoners and shed the crocodile tears for them.

Seriously, where are they now?! I don't know if this is a matter to laugh or cry about but whatever it is, I am angry or better to say I am crazy at them.

They could go and sit with the Persian King and question him for hours on bunch of terrorists and hardline Mullahs in jails and then criticize his majesty's government for the mistreatment of the terrorists, but now they are just silent on cases like Akbar Ganji, Abbas Entezam, Zarafshan and thousands of bloggers, workers, students and ordinary people being tortured in Iran today.

It is some thing the leftist media must be ashamed of, although I believe they have no shame at all...

CNN apologizes to the nasty Mullahs and then BBC starts shaking in her boots and all they intend to do is to keep their mouths shut in order to be able to stay in Iran.

For these useless media outlets, political prisoners such as Ganji, Entezam, Poor Zand, Batebi et al have no value.

A world without the shameful media could be a better one.

Hear! Hear!

Great point about the media asking the Shah questions and not asking the mullahs now.
