Yet in story after story, Reuters correspondents choose to withhold this critical information from readers and instead revert to their standard propaganda mantra suggesting that only the United States, Israel, and the amorphous "West" believe Iran is developing nuclear weapons:
This key omission is of course, intentional, and reflects Reuters' efforts to conceal from readers the widespread and independently-held conclusion that Iran is indeed, aggressively pursuing the bomb. Rather, the dispute is framed merely as a "he said/she said".The United States and its Western allies suspect Iran is using its nuclear energy program as a cover to build bombs. Iran denies the allegation, insisting it needs nuclear technology to generate more electricity.
Nor does Reuters note, as we did in October of 2009, that based on the widening positive gap between electricity production and electricity consumption in Iran, it is absurd to suggest (or parrot) that Iran "needs nuclear technology to generate more electricity".
Why does Reuters, which clings to claims of being an unbiased and transparent news agency, continue to cover for the Iranian regime?
