MSM Probably Not Interested In This...

‘Death to the Dictator! Death to Rouhani!’: Thousands Protest the Government in Iran

Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of Iran over the past few days, speaking out against both the “hardline” government of the ayatollahs and the supposedly “moderate” secular government of President Hassan Rouhani.

“Death to the dictator!” and “Death to Rouhani” are chants heard in at least eight Iranian cities, and the movement appears to be spreading.

It doesn't mean much.

After all, their government regularly chants "Death to America!"

Last time I looked, we're still here.

Why didn't you Google 'Iran protests' before making a fool of yourself? It's in every news outlet...

Before throwing stupid pejoratives such as "fool" around, you should have searched for the date 12/29/17. That's the date of the news I referred to at 5:00 in the morning on 12/30/17. Here's what that search shows as news sources carrying the Iran protests:

Breitbart, Fox, Independent (UK), NDTV, YOUTUBE

Note the lack of dinosaur media. Why is that?

The non-MSM reported it. That's all. Period. The MSM finally had to pay attention since they were not interested on 12/29, but the news got out anyway and the protests continued. On the second day, they were forced to report it. The MSM was so favorable to Obama and his nuclear non-agreement with IRAN that they have to try to salvage Obama, and continue to be favorable to Iran's Ayatolla dictators. Now with the deaths, they are forced to report.

There have been several mass protests in Iran this year. How many have you heard of?

Oh yeah. I missed NEWSMAX.

Fox, Independent (UK), NDTV are not MSM ??

.Fox is THE biggest news channel in the USA with a conservative leaning
. The Independant is a 30yo news outlet, which was sold for £30 million a few years ago
. NDTV is one of the biggest and most popular sources in India! Also 30yo, on the stock market... geez Stan

Yes people in Iran have been protesting regularly, what's the surprise here??

Kyle was right, you can't even just Google stuff properly.

Steve, are you here to troll? Or do you have some point in bringing up things that have little to do with the original topic?

Mainstream Media, or MSM, are not determined by size, but by the message they deliver. The MSM Stan is referring to, delivers news with a uniformly Leftist, atheist slant. I will be pleased to list the members of this group if you're interested. Fox, etc, are also media, but not mainstream, because they offer opinions which are often at odds with the majority of the media outlets.

I just want the goddamn news, without some elitist shoving his ideology down my throat every time I turn around. And I just want commenters on this blog to try being civil. That means leaving the snark, the insult, the flippancy and the assumptions of moral and intellectual superiority at the door.

Christ almighty, just be a regular goddamn human here. That's all I ask.
