Iran in Meltdown Mode Over Ukranian Jetliner Shooting
« on: January 13, 2020, 11:06:29 PM »
Apparently the government lied about the missile strike of the Ukranian Jet that killed all 176 passengers that was filled with Iranian citizens. Iran has gone full meltdown concerning the Ukranian airplane shooting. At least two Iranian journalists at a state owned media outlet have resigned from their jobs. Another left a while back telling her supporters "Forgive me for the 13 years I told you lies". Even politicians in Iran's parliment are ticked off.

A direct quote from the news article: "The Tehran-based Association of Iranian Journalists said in a statement that the country was witnessing “a funeral for public trust” that was damaging the already shaky reputation of Iran’s official media."
