    The MSM has largely ignored this story. In my opinion, the best coverage has been on blogs such as Huffington Post and AndrewSullivan.com.

    Andrew Sullivan has pretty much devoted his blog to coverage of the Iranian protests. So, since I don't ever really look at the mainstream media sites ANYWAY, i thought EVERYONE was paying attention.

    Fox seems to be carrying it more than anyone that I can tell. CNN and MSNBC have some stuff.

    Personally, I'm shocked by the lack of media attentiveness to this issue in the U.S. To me, this is the biggest story of our time, equivalent to the Berlin Wall coming down in 1989.

    I don't really understand why the MSM in America isn't on Iran 24-7.

    The Ayatollah has spoken. It's over, for now.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    All the American correspondents and crews were thrown out of Iran, so they have no direct way of gathering news. If the Ayatollah is overthrown, that will be the biggest story of our time, but it's not likely to happen.
