CNN has always been notoriously in the bag for Muslim Middle East, just by following its reporting (here as well) on the Arabs dirty terrorist war against Israel, and you’ll come to that same conclusion. Here’s an interesting piece that points out the over the top bias of the network, but it goes further, in proving that CNN is actually involved in disseminating Iranian narratives.
But there is more to Iran than the bomb. Iran is a rogue nation with dreams of global dominance that is ruthlessly controlled by a cadre of fanatical religious leaders. Their goal is simple and they will gladly repeat it openly and without hesitation. They want to make Islam the only religion for all of mankind to usher in the return of the Mahdi, who will create an Islamic paradise on earth. Of course, what they plan to do with the six billion non-Muslims and the six million Israelis who inhabit this planet is a question CNN is unwilling to even ask.
Some Americans may say, “What? Obama told us Islam is the religion of peace and all the unrest in the Middle East is because Israel has settlements and won’t give half of Jerusalem back to the Palestinians. If Israel would just make concessions and sign a peace treaty, Iran wouldn’t need a bomb.”
However, former Iranian President Ahmadinejad says otherwise:
“The final move has begun. We are in the middle of a world revolution managed by this dear (12th Imam). A great awakening is unfolding. One can witness the hand of Imam in managing it.”
To make sure everyone understood exactly what he meant, Ahmadinejad added:
“We will soon see a new Middle East materializing without America and the Zionist regime and there will be no room for world arrogance (the West) in it.”
But fast forward two years and everything has changed. Ahmadinejad is gone and he has been replaced with a media darling named Hassan Rouhani. Iran’s involvement in Syria is ignored, Iran’s interference in Iraq is overlooked, Iran’s financing of global terrorism is barely mentioned, the threats to wipe Israel off the face of the earth are an inaudible whisper, and Christiane Amanpour of CNN assures us that the new Iranian President, Hassan Rouhani, told her the Holocaust actually happened.
Which brings us to the heart of the matter. Why is CNN providing cover for the genocidal ambitions of Iran? That is the question of the day and I will leave it to my colleague, Noah Beck, to provide the answers.
CNN — the New Mouthpiece of the Iranian Regime?
by Noah Beck
Al-Jazeera bought access to US public opinion when it purchased Current TV from Al Gore, but it faces stiff competition from CNN when it comes to misleading viewers about the Middle East. Since the recent UN General Assembly, CNN has promoted an inaccurate, re-branded image of the Iranian regime on at least three major programs.
CNN’s positive spin on Iran by so many of its “journalists” is collectively staggering. Was CNN so inept and/or biased that it inadvertently promoted the Iranian regime at every opportunity? Or is there another explanation for the blatant, pro-Iranian slant? Consider each program.
When Christiane Amanpour interviewed Iranian president Hassan Rouhani, she asked him about his views on the Holocaust. His predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, frequently doubted the Nazi genocide against the Jews, so Rouhani’s views on the issue might indicate whether the Iranian regime, under a more palatable facade, has substantively improved. The title of a post on Amanpour’s blog reports “Iran’s new president: Yes, the Holocaust happened.”
