8. Oh, Give it up. Seriously.
The MSM didn't "drop the ball."

They were kicked out of Iran.

The level of discourse surrounding the media re: Iran is sophmoric at best as of late on here.

Does the MSM have issues? Of course!

But they didn't drop any ball. They were thrown out. And, as is being talked about in LBN, some journalists who hid out and overstayed visas are now being arrested.

Why don't you go read Cohen's OpEd in the NYT today.

Those who were able to stay are doing the best they can.

Twitter can be of use in these kinds of situations, but the OP is right.
