    Unfortunately there hasn’t been much media exposure in the US, aside from Andrew Sullivan and HuffingtonPost. On the day of an enormous pro Mousavi rally (AP stated the column of marchers was 5 miles long), CNNs Larry King had an interview with, I believe, someone connected with the American Idol TV program.

    Funny, until very recently, I avoided reading HuffingtonPost. I believed it was nothing but a collection of left wing celebripundits. No more….
