Iran Badge Story False: Western Spin Factory Strikes Again
The story about a new law in Iran requiring Jews to wear identifying badges a la Nazi Germany have turned out to be false. Media critic Antonia Zerbisias has the scoop.
After making it as frontpage news on Canada's conservative National Post the paper deleted the story from its website and posted a slimey retraction/information piece.
It appears the anti-Muslim feeding frenzy continues, fed by supposedly legitimate Western news sources generating a (un)healthy supply of dangerous propaganda. Despite the Iraq WMD debacle and the scandal of former NYTimes reporter Judith Miller, the media has either not learned from past mistakes or are actively continuing to perpetrate an insidious campaign to misrepresent Muslims and Islam.
