Iran and the free press: the twisting of logic

Frances Harrison of the BBC needs to be congratulated for her article about Iran: supposedly promoting free speech while hosting holocaust denial conferences.

The twisited logic and lies is summed up by the deniers claiming to be working to promote free speech and thanking Iran for being a beacon of the free press that allows them to express their views. The fact is thousands are imprisoned for just voicing their opposition.

I think this sentence reflects the article nicely:

"They were vague - happy to whitewash Iran without knowing the facts. As a journalist living and working in Iran I found it particularly galling to be told that I had freedom of speech by these people (holocaust deniers)."
