Unimpressed with Ted Koppel program conclusion for following reasons:
1- Ted Koppel did not visit Kazemi grave and did not mention anything about her. This is the best test case for honesty level of a journalist traveling to Iran and whether the Journalist has high code of ethics or not. As Ted Koppel is fully aware, Ms. Zahra Kazemi, a Canadian-Iranian photojournalist, was arrested on June 23, 2003 and was savagely and barbarically beaten to death by Islamic regime officials. News agencies reported that Ms. Kazemi's body was buried on July 23, 2003, in Shiraz, Iran, contrary to the wishes of her family (for other detailed facts regarding the case please click on http://www.activistchat.com/reporter/index.html ).
2- Mostly interviewed with former or current Islamic Fascists Terrorist occupiers of Iran.
3- Akbar Gangi is not considered real dissident because for many years he served Islamic Fascist regime.
4- Did not cover Human Rights abuses in Iran...
5- The purpose of this program was to prepare American public for stupid strategy of direct talk with Islamic Fascists to discredit US stand against war on terror and support for liberty and freedom.....
6- Ted Koppel had hidden agenda....

Mr. Ted Koppel’s EMBARASSING Show About Iran
By Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi

Hi Everyone,

I just had the miserable experience of sitting through Mr. Ted Koppel’s EMBARASSING show about Iran . Basically, all I can say is that if anything, no more than 25% of that show was true. He had interviewed nothing but THE biggest liars, ideologues and corrupt individuals around. From Massoumeh Ebtekar, who is one of the women, members of the Khatami cabinet who in fact was one of the main hostage-takers, a brutal and vicious woman…to Ebrahim Yazdi, one of the conceptualizers of the Khomeinist revolution, a charlatan, a pompous revisionist and master propagandist who has managed to launder his reputation to look presentable for the credulous members of the western press – like Mr. Kopple - but his hands are STILL covered in the blood of many thousands of Iranians who were slaughtered in the name of Khomeini. It is quite unbelievable that it was Mr. Kopple himself whose show Niteline started as a result of the hostage crisis and who knew the reputation of both these individuals as he reported night after night about the Islamic revolution…and yet he sat there and legitimized these villains.

Mr. Koppel, basically passed off everyone from a Hezbollah leader to some of the corruptest Mullahs as nice enough guys with possibly good reasons for being SO “irate”. He NEVER once mentioned anything about the thousands of political prisoners in Iran under torture, the millions of hungry workers, the gangland style wars between the various Mullah factions, the kidnapping of activists, bloggers, labor leaders, intellectuals…the execution of teenagers and the robbing of the youth of Iran from higher education because of their anti-regime activities….among the hundreds of other counts of inhumanity that this regime has committed against the brave people of Iran and is looking to perpatrate against the world.

In the name of so-called dissidents, he interviewed Akbar Ganji who we all know is a window-dressing facsimile of a political prisoner and basically in total service of the regime.

ALL IN ALL folks, Mr. Koppel told the American people that the Mullahs may be reasonable yet complicated people and never once blinked to say, after he had left Iran - and was doing his voice over for his show - that the people of Iran are all prisoners of a bunch of Islamo-imperialists who have ripped them off in order to take revenge on humanity.

SO, for those of you who saw the show or those of you who will see the show (to see clips click here) and want to make comments, you could either send your comments to: viewer_relations@discovery.com , asktedkoppel@discovery.com and http://extweb.discovery.com/viewerrelations . It is important that you do send your comments to all 3.
