Does this prove that the media are baised?(Reading all this may take 7 mins)?

I think reading this in 5-7 minutes would be better than listening to the news in a lifteime.Plz don't think I'm a very old person.Just 18.A university student studying English who just cannot sit back and hope.

My question is: what percentage of what I say is acceptable to you?

This article has three parts: 1.Cultural and general info 2.music and 3.political, so plz read it from the top to the bottom.

Hi.I'm Iranian and I live in Iran.When I chat with people from other countries, I understand that they have totally wrong ideas about Iran.I just wrote this article to correct you.

The first thing they accuse our government of, is that they don't let you be free.Actually, Iranians would be some of the most liberal people in the world (liberal meaning not obeying laws that they don't like).Thousands of millions of strict rules in other countries, don't even exist in Iran.Also, you should understand that what may seem so normal to you, may be a nightmare for us and vise versa.That's why you don't understand a few of Iran's laws.In Iran every single house has a sattelite. Sattelite channels had a serious influence on people, they wear very fashionable clothes.Maybe it's a kind of immitation, but still it's got an unique Iranian style. People wear fashionable scarves to make themselves more attractive and most part of their hair is out, also it's a part of our culture.Iran is one of the super-consumers of cosmics! People do whatever they wish to and some of the things they do, don't fit our culture at all, however it's normal in Iran.You really need to pay a visit to Iran and you'll be surprised seeing the difference between what you imagined before and how the real Iran is! It's wonderful.The Iran you know, is related to at least 30 years ago.At present, everything's so great if you don't take unemployment and air pollution into account.So many things have changed so far.I can't even compare Iran with 5 years ago, let alone comparing it with 30 years ago!!!! After all, nearly 65-70% of Iran's population is considered the new generation (The youth) and they've transformed everything.

Some people think women don't have any rights in Iran! What would you tell me if I tell you that women are now overtaking Iran? They're treated very well, most of the times they're the winners in most cases: They get into the best universities.They get the best jobs.They've got rights that have made it difficult for men to marry them, because husbands buy them expensive things and treat them very well, otherwise women will have the right to ask them a great amount of money which most husbands cannot afford. (so, they can simply sit in the corner of prison! lol).The only thing that women are not allowed to do in Iran is getting into public football stadiums and that's just because IN IRAN, such places are usually full of cheeky guys who would cheek girls.I don't think girls would go there, even if they're allowed to do so.As far as I know, not many girls in Iran are interested in football!

Another funny thing: Your footage about stoning the women who have committed adultery.Have you ever asked yourself they relate to how many years ago?Just for your information, those are from Afghanistan which was once ruled by those freaks (Taliban).I find it difficult to make you understand that Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan are SEPERATE COUNTRIES! and that we're Persian and some Turkish not Arab! And I find it even more difficult to make you understand that Iran is a normal country like any other countries in the world.There's nothing mysterious about it!(The media is very good at making scary titles: BEHIND THE CLOSED DOORS!!! IRAN UNDERCOVER!!! This would be enough to scare people away! Iranians are much more educated, intelligent and open-minded than what you think!!! I'm sure you don't know that there are lots and lots of Iranian geniouses and scientists that are all under 25.You don't hear about their discoveries and inventions on TV. A small example is this 17 year old boy who's invented 72 amazing inventions.You don't know that Iranian students and sportsmen are winning gold and silver medals in different compotitions in the world all the time such as robotics, biology, maths, physics, sports, anything! Why don't the media talk about them?Did you know that the countries having the highest number of scientists in the world are in this order? 1-India 2-Korea 3-Iran

A few weeks ago Iran uncovered the most effective anti-H.I.V medicine and now it's signing treaties with other countries to export it.I digged the news on the internet, but there was no single sign of that.What I found instead? "President Bush CLAIMS that bomb parts are imported from Iran into Iraq!" The media are injustice.They'd put CLAIMS on the headlines, but they would never talk about facts! Some interesting facts:

Iran is the pionier in medicine and genetics and Iranian surgens have found lots of new methods for treating spinal defects and many other diseases (mainly the treatment for different types of cancer) and the the best brain and heart surgens are Iranian surgens.The head of Mars Mission in NASA is Iranian.One of the best designer of sports cars working in Germany is Iranian.Some of the best 3D animators are Iranian.Iran is one of the best countries in counter-engineering.Holds the second place in building dams.The 4th highest tower (Milad tower) in the world is in Tehran (which you can visit in the second link).The champion weight-lifter is Iranian.The woman, and a song by one of the pop singers who/which won the nobel peace prize are Iranians. And as you all know, Iranian girls are famous for being terrific.Persian rug and Persian literature, many Persian poets and scientists that are so famous.Persian culture is now westernised and only a little has survived! According to statistics Tehran is the cheapest capital city in the world for foriegners with Dollars of course not for us! (Cos our rate is different: one Dollar=about 950 Tomans!) Who do you think is building Dubi?Arabs?No my friends, Iranian architectures, engineers and traders funding them, cos they don't think building the same things in Iran would be beneficial for them, Since the media scare tourists away from Iran.There are many other things.And also, Iran is a very independant country.It has nearly all the developed industries and technologies and doesn't need other countries to survive! That's why the unfair U.N sanctions don't bother us! The list is endless.

Some charactristics of Iranians would be: Proud, greedy, hard-working, intelligent, ambitious, not realistic, not so religious, not so generous, not punctual, impatient, well-dressed, formal, well-educated, warm and friendly and hospitable.

Some people think, Iran's a desert! Iran's a modern country with very beautiful nature and lots of historical places to visit.Please take a look at the following links and see if Iran looks like what you think or not! (Surely it doesn't!)

Some people think music is forbidden in Iran.Did you know that Iranian pop music has won the prize in France in 2005? All Iranian songs are current pop /Trance/ DJ music.I send them to my American and Canadian chat friends and they all admit that it's the best music they've ever heard.They specially love the beat.

It's now 2007 and people still think we are uneducated people living in deserts, riding camels and carrying around guns!!!!

See how the media are fooling people? None of the things you hear on the media about Iran are true.If you think I've been admiring Iran too much, that's because you'd do the same thing if you were looked down nearly everyday for some false reasons.

I think it's better to clarify some political issues as well:

Some of the Americans I chatted with, said in the U.S it's said that president Ahmadinejad hates the U.S and Israel and wants to nuke them!! The media are good at putting comments.It's easy to show a video or an image of our president or leader on the T.V screen or on the internet and say he says this, he says that.....I really don't get the point why our politicians defame themselves by talking about things that have got nothing to do with us.For example does verbal defence of Palestinians cause them to have a better life?The thing is that they occasionally make some statements that the media would misuse it agaisnt Iran. like picking up some specific sensitive phrases from among a long speech (without reffering to the main points and reasons for that speech) and putting so many bad comments on that.No sane person would take it serious.

First of all, Iranians don't hate anyone.If our government complains about some injustice going on in the world, it's not bad.Is it? We hate neither Jews nor Americans.They're both nice people.If their media are fooling them, it's not their fault.If I were in their shoes, I would hate Iran too regarding all the terrible lies they keep hearing about it nearly everyday.Although ordinary Iranians don't care about world affairs, I've got to say that for us Israel is not equal to Jews! Israel is a govt.Jews are faithful people! A few of them live here in our neighbourhood and they live just like the rest of Iranians.No difference.And two of Iran's parliment members are Jews. Who says we want to force the others to convert to Islam?Have you ever found a Muslem knocking at your door asking you to do so?That's so funny. Christians and Jews are both God believers and respectful to us.I wonder why the media like putting words in our mouth and raising hatred.In Iran, religion would be the least important thing. It means that where you come from and what your religion is, are not important to us at all.And I wonder why some Muslem countries think there's a problem between Shiites and Sunnies. It doesn't make sense in Iran.

I wonder Iran is a threat to whom? Which logical rule admits that it's logical to say a country is guilty because we THINK / PREDICT that she's going to do something wrong?!!!! Has Iran ever attacked any countries?There's no proof on that.That's even what nuclear agency says.Only Iran's oppositions are pulling Iran's leg.What we're doing is legal.What they ask us to do (ignoring our international rights) is illegal and nonsense.Iran is a peaceful country.Why? It's the regional super-power and if she wanted, she could invade the countries in our neibourhood just like Seddam did to our country, but as you see Iran has peaceful relationships with all of them.It could be a good example to some countries that just follow their interests.What is interesting is that the countries which charge Iran of different things have been, and still are in charge of the same things!!! This could be a modern form of philosophy and logic!

Some say he said: Israel should be wiped off the map! But have they told you the rest of his speech and that why he's said this at all? If you know a little literature, you know that it's a passive sentence.He's never said that IRAN wants to wipe Israel off the map! And he wasn't talking about destroying Israel.He was talking about relocating Israel, so that they could live seperate from Palestinians and they both could live in peace.They've only told you this phrase not the rest of it and it's mistranslated deliberitely.Iran's always defended itself, but it's not an offensive country.While some countries which have nukes are clearly threatening Iran to nuke her! Good, isn't it?

Some say he's said: Holocaust is a myth! again this is a single phrase from among a long speech and there are totally logical reasons for saying so.If 6000000 Jews were killed, that's so terrible, but those 300000 Shiite Moslems killed by Saddam aren't important at all! Over 650000 Iraqi people are killed and it's not important! When Fox News simply says: America and Israel are capable of destroying and killing all Iran's 69000000 population within two weeks, it's OK and no one says they're threatening other countries to nuke them (I saw this with my own eyes on the Fox News website) Millions of people killed in Afghanistan, Hiroshima %26amp; Nakazaki and vietnam war are not considered human beings at all! Now I think you'd get the point why he's IRONICALLY said it's a mith.Moreover, don't you believe in freedom of speech/mind?

Obviousely, some countries are using Iran as a victim to put the blame (their own faults) on Iran.And which country is better than Iran to be a victim?They've made the whole world believe that Iran isn't a peaceful country and represent false image of Iranians by making insulting movies like "300" .

I know Americans don't like these either, but what can they do?They can't control what the media says.I hope someday the media would end all this instead of playing a negative role in the world.


Does this prove that the media are baised?(Reading all this may take 7 mins)?

Thank you very much. You will get a lot of insults from people too warped by the media, esp the state owned FAUX news coming down on you of course.

You will get the believers in free speech who will tell you to shut the F up and get a life.

You will get the slow readers and the "I don't carers" to not read but punch for the 2 points.

I have many friends around the world. Many many in the Middle East. It is NOT as they say. Having been through parts of the Mid East myself, I weep when they call the cradle of civilization the names they do.

But how can a government rationalize the horrendous intentions Bush and his cabal have planned for Iran if not by making it LOOK as if this is necessary ... after all, Iran and Iraq are just deserts waiting for the "civilizing" influence of Western style democracy?

I look forward to getting home from work later and investigating those links. Here is another for YOU.


Oh and this one. See What Amerikka wishes to do to the Iranian people. DO NOT go to the following site if there are children in the vicinity. DO NOT go to it if you have a weak stomach. But.. SEE what this warfare does and read about how it effects your boys who are then slowly killed off in your hospitals for vets. 40% of your soldiers are affected after just a few months over there! They are now expendable rather than try to heal them.

She didn't even answer the question. She just sympathized with you. Report It

Way too long. Im gonna wait for the Fox News recap.

Interesting.....I always wonder about our misconceptions about other countries.

I didn't take the time to read, but yes I believe your right.

Please get a new story. Reruns may be fun in Iran, but I'm getting really bored with this one.

Does this prove that the media are baised?(Reading all this may take 7 mins)?

I read three senences and stopped. I don't need to read it all, no disrespect pal. Yes, the media is biased. It's job is simply this: to confirm prejudice. It has little incentive to battle the perceptions of those who report the news, or time for that matter. Peace.

Starting reading it but I don't have time for a novel now. If you want fair and balanced news go to Fox News if you want liberal, left leaning, lemming following news, most of the others should fill that ballot.

Does this prove that the media are baised?(Reading all this may take 7 mins)?

the media is biased, and I knew that before reading this huge thing....

Americans don't have time to research, and many people believe what they see on TV because they truly believe that there is such thing as TOTALLY free press. What they don't understand is that countries (for example Israel) employ some of the biggest PR firms in America to spin stories to their benefit. Why does the US ban many middle eastern satellite channels from being seen? Because they do not agree with their views, and because they are not located in the US, they cannot control any part of the broadcasts. If people just do some simple research, they would see how "free" their country really is.

Salom, holet chet aray?

(that's the best I can do with the spelling)

I have always said that the best way for America to deal with Iran is to be patient. I think the next generation of Persians will be more reasonable than the current regime.

Have you seen '300?' or are you falling victim to what you complain of here- the media? just curious. We watch movies for entertainment, not education. If we watched them for education, then Michael Moore would have us believe that Dick Clark shot an elementary school kid.

Two of my closest friends growing up are Persian (brothers). I know more about your culture than the average American.

I have a suggestion to the answerers: Click on %26gt;David J%26lt;, then click on the tab that says %26gt;questions%26lt;.

You have posted the exact same information (under different headings) more than 15 times in the past three days.

Thank you for educating me that Iran is filled with boring repetetive people.

The social and cultural aspects of your article were very interesting and informative. However, I do have a few comments about the political section.

Genocide in any form is wrong, whether it takes place in Nazi Germany, Iraq, Bosnia, or Darfur. There is lots of evidence available that shows that the Holocaust did exist, but many people choose to ignore that evidence. Since the nation of Israel did not exist at that time, it seems like logical to assume that a denial of incontravertable evidence has to be linked to a prejudice against the Jewish people.

I think we can both agree that over the years both the Israelis and the Palestinians have suffered as a result of geopolitical decisions that were not well thought out. However, physically expelling the Israelis does not provide a satisfactory solution to the problem. Some kind of accomodation has to be made to allow both sides to live in peace.

And how exactly would you characterize the Iranian government's support of Hezbollah? Supporting a clearly terrorist organization does little to paint Iran as a peace-loving nation.

Does this prove that the media are baised?(Reading all this may take 7 mins)?

Well said David, you are right, media is biased. Unfortunately most people get their information from Faux News. Religion is the root of all evil and is dragging Iran down the drain. Iran is the only country in the world that has declared it' people immature and incapable so they need a velayate faghih to make decisions for them. With leaders like that who can believe that we Iranians are nice? By the way you failed to mention that Iranians take the friendship of a Jew over an Arab any day.

Does this prove that the media are baised?(Reading all this may take 7 mins)?

Look its not only Iran, i am Arab Palestinian Muslimah and I get soo much s h i t form igonorant racists her in America everyday. Our masjid is always getting TPed and little kids from the nearby apartments throw rocks and waterballoons. We cant change their minds as much as we try, we might as well try to clear the misconseptions but not loose sleep over it and just try to live our lives and not care what they think.

Does this prove that the media are baised?(Reading all this may take 7 mins)?

Thanks to another poster who directed me to the amount of questions you have asked. How come it's the same stuff? I actually read the entire thing and would like to say where in the world would Iran like Israel moved to? Oh yeah, you must know something about the American political culture because we seem to be overrun with people claiming that they are victims. Now I've seen it all when an entire country is a victim. I'm sorry but I don't really feel sorry for your country. Just one more thing. If Iran cares sooooo much about the world's population why don't they give the HIV medicine to the people of Africa who are suffering terribly? Why do you have to sign treaties to export it?
