“Tonight we are all Iranian”
If you are on Twitter and you are not following #IranElection, you should be. This is turning out to be a major world event and the majority of the US Media is absent (apparently 24/7 doesnt include weekends?) #CNNfail is one of the top 10 trending topics! Here are a few of the recent Tweets having to do w/ the Iran Election:

I am a huge fan of CNN but I am amazed at how long they are taking to cover this story. When they are talking about the story they are doing very little to cover what is actually happening on the ground right now.
If you are on Twitter, change your pic to show your support for the people in Iran who are being beating and assalted by the Iranian Dictator’s Army. At the top of this post is a green ribbon. Post that on your picture!
