A Voice From Tehran

The control room got the call about half an hour into Kyra's 1pET show; we had a "beeper" - guest on the phone - from the Iranian capital. To providing what boxed-in international journalists couldn't: a first-person account of the day's mass rally in the streets of Tehran.

    Kyra,
    I always watch your segment, and always been a fan, but today this image started to fade away,
    during your interview with a Professor from Tehran University (I think he is in Boston now, and I forget his name) he was explaining in fair and balanced comments about the outcome of the Iranian elections, and how there is big difference between the majority in Tehran and the majority in Iran as a whole, he also said that the majority in IRAN voted for Ahmadinajad, and the majority in Tehran can not impose their opinion on Iran as a whole. He explained that the opposition in Iran does not have solid grounds and physical evidence to overthrow the elections, and I believe he is right.
    And all what you had to say "but Ahmadinejad denies the Holocaust"
    I wonder was your answer a way of drifting the conversation because you did not find any logical answer to the professor's comments? or is it only because Ahmadinejad denies the Holocaust he does not deserve the majority of his own people's vote?
    The professor did hit the real issue, but you did not like it, you wanted to change the subject, I can not understand this, I expected better from you Kyra, I expected that you either stand firm, or understand his point of view, or at least be open to a different perspective, but you choose a non logical approach.
    By the way, I am not from Iran, and I am not Muslim, but I can differentiate between objective news and biased news
    thank you
