On Monday, CBS This Morning took time to mark the 40th anniversary of Iran’s brutal Islamic regime seizing power. Rather than point out four decades of human rights abuses, including the taking of American hostages, reporter Elizabeth Palmer instead noted the “festive atmosphere” of celebrations in Tehran and seemed to blame the United States for “toxic” relations with the dictatorship.

After co-host Bianna Golodryga noted that “hundreds of thousands of people in Iran filled the streets today to mark the 40th anniversary of the country’s Islamic revolution,” Palmer reported from the Iranian capital and declared: “In spite of the lousy weather, there’s quite a festive atmosphere at this anniversary parade.”

Palmer is known for sympathetic coverage of Iran. Back in October, she portrayed the authoritarian nation as a victim of the “bullying and belligerent United States.”

CBS is busy rehabbing Ralph Northam’s reputation, so why not the mullahs as well?
