A couple of weeks ago, the New York Times had a great blog post about the iconic image of Tiananmen Square-- the unarmed man facing down a line of tanks
I'm not a basher of the "MSM," but it really does seem like the coverage of the protests in Iran is fundamentally not at the same level. I think that I have to agree with Megan McArdle (gasp) -- this is what happens when you close all your foreign bureaus. There's still information coming out via tweets and other sources, but I'm having trouble piecing it together into a story, since I have a full-time job and can't spend my day online. But it does seem like "At least one killed in election protests in Iran" (which is the Washington Post's current headline) doesn't quite capture the moment of what's going on.
