A Slow-moving Military Coup

Events in the Iranian election certainly caught everyone off-guard this week, and in fact devolved so quickly that it was hard to keep up with them. Here, Reza Aslan talks to John Roberts on Thursday's American Morning, before the bottom fell out:

Friday, Reza spoke with Rick Sanchez about what was clearly coming into focus as massive election fraud:

(Reza has a column posted today on The Daily Beast that is the source of the post title.)

Here also are the clips from Sunday's Fareed Zakaria GPS of Christiane Amanpour's report from Tehran and the panel discussion:

Why isn't 360 on Fridays? It is causing CNN's
ratings to go down.TVN has the numbers for
Friday and it is not pretty. Dobbs and Brown
can not continue in the line-up.TVN also has
some interesting info on Brown's show.CNN
needs 2 replacement shows like last year.

Kudos to Don Lemon. He really did great work
on Sunday. He talked openly about CNN's Iran
coverage and was very respectful of the critics
and proved yet again he is a solid journalist.

I was just on TVN and the numbers are really
Jaw-dropping. CNN did not even have one million
viewers and was 4th in the demo(under 200 thou).
CNN needs to lose Campbell Brown and Larry King.
The content of their programs last night was just
inexcusable,Why 360 did not air live for 2 hours
is beyond me. People have clearly turned on CNN.

I for the life of me can not figure out why
CNN is using pundits when talking about Iraq.
Newsflahs : drop the pundits like a bad habit
when covering major news stories.360 should
have been live for 2 hours and should get back
to being a 120 minutes news program.CNN is
confusing its viewers. We do not know if 360
will be news or a special. Here is another big
story that CNN blew in a major way. I really
can not believe that CNN does not have a
social media team. How can a news channel
not have a tech savvy team these days.
Management should even have a couple
of social media folks to bring CNN in to
the 21st century.

CNN=fail is for real this time.CNN had
better get back in to the 24/7 news biz
again before there is nothing left to save.
