Call on AP to Retract False Reporting on Iran by George Jahn
28-Jul-2008 (3 comments)

On July 25, the Associated Press published a report by journalist George Jahn titled “Iran ends cooperation with UN nuclear arms probe”. [1] The story claimed to be based on comments by Gholamreza Aghazadeh, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organisation in a press conference after meeting with the Director General of the IAEA, Mohamed Elbaradei.

Several news agencies immediately republished the AP’s report without questioning its authenticity and credibility. Yet a simple analysis of the contents of this item reveals repeated distortions of facts.

George Jahn writes in his report:

“Iran signaled Thursday that it will no longer cooperate with U.N. experts probing for signs of clandestine nuclear weapons work, confirming the investigation is at a dead end a year after it began.”

The transcript of Aghazadeh’s comments in Persian was partly published by Iran’s state media as well as Radio Farda funded by the US Congress. He said:

“The two sides were conscious that the so-called alleged studies is a side issue and does not affect our ongoing and bilateral cooperation with the Agency. Iran has done whatever it could in connection with the alleged studies case and the IAEA will draw necessary conclusion on the issue at an appropriate time.” >>>

There are a lot of ....

There are a lot of false reporting about Iran and Iranians by the zio-nazi-dominated news media. I guess the best thing to do is to ignore them. After all, isn't the prupose of news reporting that they get attention to what they have to say and therefore make money from "commercials"? When they are ignored, not clicked, not read, they WILL GO DOWN! I assure you.

However, one thing we should do in concert is to let other Iranians know that the particular media is not trustable. Indian immigrants did that when their migration to US started, were subject of blatant lies and false reporting (perhaps because of their color) and they succeeded briliantly. Of course times have changed, but we need to change accordingly.


CASMII lobby &“false reporting”

CASMII lobby complaining about “false reporting” is just rich. Next, Islamist republic’s propaganda mouthpiece, PressTv, would be bemoaning the lack of journalistic standards.
