Ahmadinejad slams West’s instrumental use of media

(TehranTimes) – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad slams the West for its instrumental use of media with the aim to dominate the world.

The president made the remarks in a Saturday speech to mark the ‘Reporters’ Day’.

August 8 (Mordad 17 in the Iranian calendar) is named the Reporter’s Day marking the anniversary of the martyrdom of IRNA correspondent Mahmoud Saremi in Afghanistan in 1998 when Taliban fighters occupied the Iranian consulate in Mazari Sharif.

“Western media have always portrayed justice-seeking nations as weak and inefficient while showing the bullying powers as freedom-seeking and pro-democratic,” Ahmadinejad stated.

The West is using media as a psychological warfare tool against other countries, the president noted.

Ahmadinejad cited the Palestine issue as a concrete example in which Western media try to manipulate realities on the ground.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Ahmadinejad noted that there is no obstacle in the way of Iranians livings abroad to return back to the country.

The president also called on organizations which have filed lawsuits against certain reporters to withdraw their complaints. – Source: Tehran Times

One thought on “Ahmadinejad slams West’s instrumental use of media

  1. When President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad slams the West for its instrumental use of media with the aim to dominate the world he gets in the news. When other Americans and myself do it, we are ostracized or mostly ignored. Never, not even in Nazi Germany, has the media been so propagandistic to the point of cheerleading for the Government as the world has seen in America. One must remember how Fox news was such rah rahs when America invaded Iraq on trumped up charges. It was ludicrous but the people ate it up. It was so sanitized, so blatantly omissive to reality that it seemed like watching a video game, but without all the blood and violence. What happened to the coverage of the Battle for the Baghdad airport? Opps, didn’t meet the criteria of all conquering heroes. Heck, they still to this day deny it ever took place. The undeclared wars of America are still wars, and war is hell on Earth. One only has to see who owns the media to realize there is an agenda. The first victim of war is truth. Hence, so much for truth, justice and the American way. All three have fallen victim to the atrocities of the 21st Century America.
