Annals of the Mainstream Media - Iran

The New York Times seems to accept that Iran had a real election and that the “reform movement” was actually a reform movement, not another branch of the Mullachcracy. I don’t know the extent that they are incorrect (there are nuances, of course), but not to explore this strong possibility–and that the entire election was a charade–strikes me as the sloppiest of reporting… and almost willfully shallow.
