Press TV’s Glamour Girl

Believe it or not, Press TV has hired former “adult entertainment” model and party girl, Edwina Storie, as its Australia correspondent. The Iranians must be getting really desperate to spread their message.

Storie’s storied history includes descriptions on social media accounts of enthusiastic alcohol consumption and modeling sites with racy images. It goes without saying – but we’ll say it anyway – that all this would be sufficient for her to be stoned to death in the country of her new employers.

The former glamour gal is certainly busying herself on behalf of the Iranian theocracy, including a story calling for the prosecution of former Aussie Prime Minister John Howard and leading military officials as “war criminals.”

Of course, hypocrisy is nothing new to Press TV, which regularly blasts European officials for suppressing “free speech” – more recently, after the French company GlobeCast stopped the broadcast of Iran’s Spanish-language Hispan TV in Latin America. The Iranian media outlet had praised GlobeCast as resisting the avalanche of transmission blocks by international satellite companies. Turns out Press TV was wrong.

For those who’ve forgotten, the various broadcasts have been stopped particularly against the background of decisions by the EU and the US  to sanction the “Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting” (IRIB), which is the state-controlled media corporation that owns Press TV – whose senior officials themselves were later sanctioned by the EU.

Maybe Ms. Storie needs to better understand her stories – and her employers.

  2. […] Iranians never stop  complaining about the media; they’re so hypocritical.  Sometimes they even manage to find someone to agree that “it’s not us – it’s […]
