However, the double standard applied by Western news agencies is striking. Richard Nixon trounced George McGovern in his native state of South Dakota in the 1972 elections. Had Al Gore won his home state of Tennessee in 2000, no one would have cared about a Florida recount, nor would there have been a Supreme Court case called Bush v. Gore. If Vice-Presidential candidate John Edwards had won the states he was born and raised in (South and North Carolina), President John Kerry would now be serving his second term. But somehow, in Western newsrooms Middle Eastern people choose their candidates not on merit, but on the basis of their “tribe.”

Iran’s Press TV disputes story of Neda’s death – CNN 6/28/09

Two people told Press TV there were no security forces in the area when Neda Agha-Soltan, 26, was killed on June 20. Neda’s death was captured on amateur video — most likely by a cell phone — and posted online. Within hours, she had become the iconic victim of the Iranian government crackdown.  Eyewitnesses say Neda was shot by pro-government Basij militiamen perched on a rooftop. But Press TV said the type of bullet that killed her is not used by Iranian security forces.
