CNN Interviews Iranian Vice President Who Threatened to Kill American Hostages in 1979, Conveniently Forgets to Mention That

Christiane Amanpour interviewed a terrorist in one of her latest pieces of so-called “journalism.”

She also threatened to kill those hostages.

CNN failed to mention that.

I’m not sure this is a new low for CNN, but the bar is certainly not being raised.


Sorry. No data so far.

CNN Gives Friendly Interview to Iranian Woman Who Said She Would Kill U.S. Hostages in 1979

On Tuesday night, CNN aired an interview between its international anchor Christiane Amanpour and Masoumeh Ebtekar, currently Iran’s vice president for women and family affairs. Amanpour did not once mention Ebtekar’s connection to the Iran Hostage Crisis in 1979, however. Ebtekar was one of the pro-Islamic Revolution students who seized the U.S. Embassy. She herself said she would personally shoot U.S. hostages in the head if American troops came to liberate the hostages.

In a brief segment cut from a 15-minute interview, Amanpour asked the Iranian leader whether the strike that killed Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani had brought Iranians together.


Here are some of the responses Amanpour received on Twitter, also courtesy of LI

The ironic thing is that many Average Americans seem to remember the horror that CNN is not acknowledging.

I was 10 years old when the Iran Hostage Crisis began and 11 when it ended.

For 444 days, we watched it on the evening news every single night and CNN seems to act like The Iran Hostage Crisis never happened.

CNN entered the picture in 1980, but many of the people that work there remember and know the truth.

They simply choose to ignore it.

CNN has gained quite a reputation for Fake News.

This is not news America.

The Onion would be embarrassed of some of CNN’s stories.

What a slap in the face to interview one of the Iranian terrorists who seized our embassy and threatened to kill hostages in 1979.

CNN hates America.

Most of America hates CNN but we must keep spreading the news of their lies, so everyone will finally tune them out.

Death to CNN!
