[Al Jazeera English] Murder in Tehran could be the title of the latest Hollywood blockbuster, but this is not a movie.
On January 11, the fourth Iranian nuclear scientist to be assassinated in two years was blown up by a magnetic bomb attached to his car door. And while the media did not reveal Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan’s assassin, they did reveal their own agendas and double standards.
Iranian media instantly pointed the finger at Israel. As ever, the Israelis neither confirmed nor denied. Over in the US and the UK, mainstream media outlets used his death as yet another beat in the drum roll for war against the Islamic Republic.
In this week’s News Divide, we look at what the assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist says about the news media and their own agendas.
