Are they going to paint the largest state sponsor of terrorism as a big misunderstood teddy bear who only wants nukes for "peaceful"purposes while sitting on some of largest oil reserves in the Middle East. You and I both know how controlling and barbaric Iran is. ABC will report exactly what Iran wants them to report.
ABC will surely be aiding and abetting Nuclear Iran............and What is the relationship between al-Jazeera, al Qaeda and America's TV networks?
You must remember the deal the networks made, particularly CNN, with Saddam to have access to Iraq under his totalitarian regime. They were complicit in his crimes against humanity by virtue of their silence. This disgusting story here in the Wall Street Journal and below
In a shocking New York Times opinion piece, CNN's chief news executive Eason Jordan has admitted that for the past decade the network has systematically covered up stories of Iraqi atrocities. Reports of murder, torture, and planned assassinations were suppressed in order to maintain CNN's Baghdad bureau.
Read Jordan's op-ed at New York Times
Jordan has not always been so candid -- nor honest. Just six months ago on public radio, when challenged regarding the veracity of CNN's Baghdad reports, Jordan stated:
"CNN has demonstrated again and again that it has a spine; that it's prepared to be forthright... we work very hard to report forthrightly, to report fairly and to report accurately and if we ever determine we cannot do that, then we would not want to be there [in Iraq]." Here are the transcripts
The deal? Keep silent and you can stay...............and so they did
while thousands died. How they sleep at night I'll never know. No Craig, Sorry if my point was obscured by the CNN horror story.
I reran the CNN piece to point out what lengths a network will go to to gain "access" to despotic regimes. CNN was an accessory to mass murder just so that they could maintain a presence in Iran.
Do you really think that the brutal America hating, Jew Hating, West hating regime is going to give ABC access to the Kurds, the dissidents, the jails, the oppressed, the nuclear enrichment facilities? I mean really.
A tale of two stories: Same story, check out the spin.........

hmmm, ABC eh? Didn't they just sign to report their evening news from Iran? One can only begin to imagine the wonderful stories ABC will concoct to maintain access.
UPDATE: Media bias redux
I am sure you've seen the piece splashed all over the world about the teenage boy in Fort Lauderdale (hey that's where I am, I would have joined him but he didn't blog it!) - that flew to Iraq without his parents, or anyone knowing anything about it.
Reader C max points out;
FOX News also published the essay. But notice how the BBC carefully DISGUISES the reason why Hassan felt compelled to go to Iraq. In fact, the sound byte from Hassan's dad makes it sound as if he went there as some sort of anti-war protest. Most of the print articles I have seen have been jocked almost word for word from the BBC story linked below:The result? Nobody seems to know that this kid went there to spread the word that America, and democracy are good.
