Talkin' Bad Journalism and Propaganda with Scott Horton

This weekend, I again had the pleasure of speaking with Scott Horton of AntiWar Radio and the aptly-named Scott Horton Show about disinformation often found in mainstream journalism on the Iranian nuclear program.

Focusing mainly on my recent article, "Propaganda & Ignorance in Reporting on Iran," published originally by (where I am actually co-editor of the Iran, Iraq, and Turkey pages - and not only a contributing writer, as Scott says), we also discussed career alarmist David Albright's full time job creating hysteria about Iran's nuclear program, and 30 years of erroneous claims that Iran is "on the verge" of a nuclear weapon.

There is also an extended RoboCop reference in there somewhere, which makes the entire half-hour chat well worth a listen.
