An Iranian Journalist Risks His Life "For Neda"

Friday, June 11, 2010


The death of Neda Agha-Soltan, captured on video, came to symbolize the violence of Iran's post-election protests. Now, a new documentary called "For Neda" tells the story of her life and features the first on-camera interviews with her family. Reporter Saeed Kamali Dehgan describes the risks he took to secretly find Neda's family.

This is a textbook example of the double standard of American news organizations, including On the Media.

1. "You managed to get through security with your cameras intact." Were the reporters cameras at risk? The Gaza flotilla protesters saw their cameras -- all -- confiscated, and computers and cell phones. One reporter found that some Israeli had used his confiscated (stolen) credit card.

2. Emily Henochowicz is not dead, but otherwise her case is remarkably similar to that of Neda Agha-Soltan. IDF terrorists shot Emily at point blank range in the face with a tear gas canister. Emily lost her eye. Photos of her being carried away are reminiscent of Nega bleeding on the ground.

Will On the Media look at the case of Emily? Has Emily Henochowicz's name ever appeared on any NPR-related program?

Will HBO do a documentary on Emily Henochowicz?
