CNN Bows, Scrapes before Mullahs

CNN stayed inside Iraq all those years by lying to the world about what was really going on there; they appear to be ready to shuck their principles again:

Iran on Tuesday lifted its ban on CNN after the U.S. news network apologized for misquoting President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as saying Tehran wanted nuclear weapons, a top culture ministry official said
Iran banned CNN journalists from working in the country on Monday after its simultaneous translation of Ahmadinejad's news conference on Saturday included the phrase "the use of nuclear weapons is Iran's right."
In fact, what the Iranian president said was that "Iran has the right to nuclear energy."
CNN later apologized for making a mistake.
"Following a request from President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the ban on the activities of CNN's stringer in Iran was lifted," Mohammad Hossein Khoshvaght, director of foreign media at Iran's culture ministry, told Reuters.
Iran denies seeking nuclear weapons, saying it wants atomic technology for generating electricity.
"I want the channel to be allowed to resume its work owing to the apology it made," Ahmadinejad said in a letter sent to the culture ministry, a copy of which was faxed to Reuters...

The ban came as CNN's Iranian-born chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour was in Iran to report on the nuclear issue.

CNN, apologizing to Hitler in a Headress over a translation issue? Sorry, did I miss their apologies to President Bush over their reporting of the forged "National Guard Memos"? Hmm, can't seem to find it...maybe a different search engine?

Such good dhimmis, our media is... click here - http://littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog/?entry=18868_NYT_Runs_Fake_Missile_Photo&only - to see how the New York Times ran al-Qaeda propoganda on page one yesterday...
