Protests? What Protests?

This is a guest post by Ben Cohen of Z Word

You wouldn’t know from the website of Press TV that Tehran is convulsed with violent protests, following Ahmadinejad’s theft of the Iranian Presidential election. Their website currently features an image of a smiling Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Iranian Supreme Leader, and the headline “Leader hails record turnout in Presidential vote.

Nothing surprising there – Press TV is the mouthpiece of the Iranian regime, after all. However, it tries to pass itself off as a legitimate news organization (complete with a chat show fronted by the execrable George Galloway.) Today’s coverage is a reminder that this squalid, Holocaust denial outfit should be seen for what it is – an integral part of the Iranian regime’s arsenal of repression.

I’ve said it before, I will say it again: boycott Press TV.
