NBC and their morning hack Ann Curry praise Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for his “grueling schedule” and asks “Why do you work so hard?”
Why am I not surprised? General Electric conducted business in Iran during the last decade, when they were forbidden from doing so. Of course, the Bush administration never did a thing about it, and as usual General Electric got away with it. Now, it’s pay back from General Electric to Iran, conducting a puff piece on NBC with Iran’s dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Yes, the same Ahmadinejad who wants to wipe Israel off the map, calls America “the big Satan” and routinely hosts “Death to America” rallies in Iran. But that didn’t stop NBC and Ann Curry from sucking Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s fallell. On Monday’s NBC Today Show, Ann Curry got an “exclusive” interview with the dictator Ahmadinejad. According to Newsbusters, the interview a fawning “day in the life” profile of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. At one point, Curry noted the dictator’s “grueling schedule” and wondered: “What is your primary motivation, as president? Why do you work so hard?”
From beginning to end, Curry’s report sounded more like propaganda on Iranian state television rather than a legitimate news story. She sympathetically declared: “A hard-driving schedule is the norm his aides say, claiming he sleeps just three hours a night and that his days often stretch to 2:00 a.m. They say even Iran’s supreme leader has advised him to sleep more.”
Absolutely pathetic! But expected from a corrupt organization like General Electric/NBC/Comcast.
