Iran protests - BBC BUSTED with phony pictures

Western media is pretty pathetic. On June 15, 2009 Western media went to great lengths to convince its gullible readers that Iranians were revolting against the victory of Ahmadinejad by using a photo of his SUPPORTERS and claiming these were the Mousavi protesters.

Here is one example of how the BBC uses phoney pictures to create a mindset with it's readers.

Picture of supposed Mousavi protesters BBC

Caption: Tehran has seen mass demonstrations by all sides since the disputed election (see correction below)

Here is the 'correction'. Guess someone complained.

Update 19 June 2009: an earlier version of our caption was incorrect. We wrongly stated that this was a pro-Mousavi rally when in fact it was a pro-Ahmadinejad rally.

Here is the same picture used by the LA Times to give the impression that Iranians are protesting AGAINST Ahmadinejad.

Here is the true caption and picture from a slightly different angle.


Iran's hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad waves to a sea of thousands of flag-waving supporters during a massive rally to celebrate his victory in the presidential elections in Tehran's Valiasr square on June 14, 2009. Ahmadinejad defended his June 12 re-election but his defeated rival, Mir Hossein Mousavi, demanded the result be scrapped, setting the stage for further tense confrontations after the authorities cracked down on opposition protests.

You can notice in the first and last pictures that the images are from Getty.

Anyone who thinks they have the real picture of what is going on in Iran from Western media, please leave your contacts details below. I have a bridge I want to sell you.

All blogs are really just small snapshots of a person's mind, heart and soul as they evolve together through life....

Small bits of the thread of life we weave together into the fabric of ourselves, in the hope we will make sense of our existence, individual and collective.

On this page, is the cloak I have fashioned from my fabric to warm myself in a universe which often makes little sense.

Inside my cloak, it is warm enough to face the blistering cold winds of the insane world in which I find myself.

If you find some a bit of 'the good stuff' here, it has been my pleasure.
