In Wake Of Soleimani Hit, One NYT Reporter Amplified Iranian Propaganda









  • New York Times "journalist" Farnaz Fassihi has been amplifying Iranian propaganda into the media following Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani’s death.
  • The Daily Caller spoke with retired retired army intelligence officer Tony Shaffer and former CIA chief of station Daniel Hoffman about some of her tweets, where she cited anonymous Iranian sources.
  • Shaffer said he believes Fassihi could be getting information fed to her directly from the Iranian government in an effort to get Americans to sympathize with Soleimani’s death.
In the days following the Jan. 2 strike that killed Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani, one New York Times journalist in particular became the focus of criticism for consistently amplifying Iranian messaging.

The journalist was by no means an isolated case. Iranian propaganda and propagandists managed to get air time on CNN, Yahoo, the NYT and Washington Post, among other outlets, and a fake American death toll that made headlines on MSNBC was actually sourced directly to Iranian media. Above it all though was New York Times reporter Farnaz Fassihi. 

The New York Times is at it again. This time, Tehran stenographer Farnaz Fassihi tells us Hassan Rouhani is Iran's "moderate president," He is taunting the U.S. in this quote and taking credit for retaliating in the Lockerbie bombing, which killed 190 Americans. Very moderate.

  1. Or parroting DNC talking points.
    Why do I write that? Simple logic. The democrats protect their donors.
    Think for a minute here. Ask yourself when the democratic party ever steered or gave away money, a portion of which didn’t call me back to them in the form of campaign contributions? Every single bill passed, every contract awarded, and every single funding request awarded to a “progressive” or DNC connected entity results in the entity donating to DNC authorized candidates or “progressive” causes. They operate under a taxpayer money laundering principle. It’s why they thought they’d never lose after Obama. Every DNC controlled coffer was full and spending lavishly on Hillary’s coronation.
    Hence, I am confident some of the money Ben Rhodes and Obama gave the mullahs was being recycled back, then, or in the future via “jobs” for the children, friends, and donors to the DNC.
