New York Times Coverage of Iran Protests Faulted as ‘Shameful,’ ‘Propaganda’

Supporters of Israel and of freedom in Iran, along with some prominent journalists, are sharply criticizing The New York Times for the newspaper’s tilted coverage of protests in the Islamic Republic.

The director of the Human Security Centre in London, Julie Lenarz, who is a senior fellow at The Israel Project, tweeted a reaction to a New York Times headline that said, “Iranian authorities have clamped down on Tehran after demonstrators across the country ignored calls for calm.”
