Go ahead, CNN. Keep saying ridiculously stupid things that completely miss the point. It almost keeps me interested in your blathering.

I know a few pages back people asked if celebrities could twitter about the situation. I asked the coolest person on twitter: Shaq.

linking this instead since it's really graphic. It's the youtube of a murdered student. I can't download/save so if anyone wants to for any reason. There you go.

If you want to download a video from youtube, put the word 'kick' in front of the URL and hit enter.

one_hoopy_frood SUMMARY OF TODAY17th-Jun-2009 12:02 am (UTC)
This is really brief, and I've c/p it about three times, adding more on each time. Here's what I have of today's events.

It's hard to summarize because it's a lot of smaller things. The protest DID happen this morning. There was a rally for Ahmedinejad, who is now in Russia. The news in Iran is saying all of the protests were for Ahmedinejad. The Ayatollahs keep changing their mind about whether or not election results should be accepted. There was a recount that reaffirmed Ahmedinejad won. There was another attack on a university by the Basij. It appears as though police officers are unarmed. CNN has been broadcasting Twitter names on air, and people are getting tracked down subsequently. The internet finally pwned them and they stopped.

There's been a lot of worry about new sources on twitter, people retweeting with usernames, etc. Everyone has changed their time zone to GMT +3:30 and the location Tehran or Iran. While Twitter was down, there was an attack on another university by the Basij. CNN really, really fails and started talking about cheeseburgers in a can or some shit instead of breaking news. Things have gone relatively quiet now, but a lot is still going on...

I'm so glad I get BBC World News with my cable provider - their coverage is really good.

Also, love the new layout!

I wish NextRevolution would update. I'm really concerned about them.

I think this post is gaining comments faster than the other one did.
