Tell Meet the Press: Real Journalism Requires Challenging False Information on Iran

On September 16, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared on US Sunday talk shows, scaremongering about Iran’s nuclear program. Meet the Press allowed Netanyahu to give a completely false picture of the Iran nuclear issue, without challenging his scaremongering through reference to known facts.

Tell Meet the Press that this is not acceptable: real journalism requires challenging false statements from politicians, particularly when these statements could provide a pretext for war.
