I'm gonna make a bunch of icons, so where are the best pictures? I've found a few, but google search is failing me.

It's all in farsi, but if you click on any of the pictures, you get redirected to a gallery :)

Urgh CNN. Did they always suck this hard?
evilgmbethy 16th-Jun-2009 07:15 pm (UTC)
for at least the last few years, yes.

Okay, this is unrelated, but CNN has brought it to my attention. I really hate tornadoes and that's coming right towards me. But at least I'm here and able to see that it's coming. As terrified as I am, I'm so lucky :\

And I don't want to hear that bullshit, CNN.

I just saw their report on that tornado. My grandmother is, I think, just far south enough to not be in too much danger, but I hope you and your family stay safe!

STFU CNN. SHUT UP.

This is getting so fucking out of hand, I DONT WANT *ANYONE* TO GET PHYSICALLY HURT; STOP THAT SHIT RIGHT NOW.

what happened?
pumpkinwaltz 16th-Jun-2009 07:18 pm (UTC)
What's happening with CNN? I'm scared to watch :/
saigonostalker 16th-Jun-2009 07:18 pm (UTC)
Oh god, they're going to actually devote air time to a discussion over whether or not Ahmadenijad might have legitimately won the election.

I can't think of a proper enough metaphor for how disgusted I am with CNN right now.

I'M SO PISSED OFF OVER THIS. FFS THIS IS SO STUPID.

A tweet by Bluetooth reminded me that Chris Hansen is following me. ^^' I hope he doesn't ask me to have a seat following the mention on Twitter. O_O

I am adding him now. Just to receive "Chris Hanson" is following you.

OH SHUT UP.
OH SHUT UP.
OH SHUT UP.

CNN is still failing hard eh?

Can someone make me an witty icon please? ilu ONTDP.
saigonostalker 16th-Jun-2009 07:22 pm (UTC)
I'll second this. My image-manipulation-fu is major fail.
keeperofthekeys 16th-Jun-2009 07:21 pm (UTC)
lol, I've pretty much abandoned my work for the rest of the day...

And I have a meeting with the boss tomorrow. D: Oh well. Iran >> work

Me too, bb.

CNN is being neutral on the iran election. The fraud/coup/etc. is not really ~confirmed~ so to speak (even though it is obvious), so they have to show both sides. It sucks, but yeah.

Has anyone even ASKED Andrew Sullivan or Nico Pitney to make an appearance? NOt that I would want them to take time away from their liveblogging but Christ, at least they are keeping informed.

I came in for the Iran election news stuff and now I'm confused about CNN. What did they do?

- mentioned tweets using the @pseud of the tweeter - understandable sort of, but puts aforementioned tweeters in danger;
- are interviewing Terror Free Tomorrow, whose findings have been thoroughly debunked by Juan Cole who knows a thing or two about the Middle East, as though their 'exit polls' were fact.
dayadhvam_triad 16th-Jun-2009 07:24 pm (UTC)
Terror Free Tomorrow? Ken Ballen? They do realize that their polling isn't... exactly...

well.
