While the Iran-friendly broadcast networks had previously defended the authoritarian regime from Trump administration accusations they cheated President Obama’s Iran nuclear deal, they were nowhere to been seen Monday night when a leaked, “confidential” International Atomic Energy Agency report exposed how the United Nations organization discovered uranium particles of “anthropogenic origin” at a previously undeclared location.
On top of that, ABC and CBS ignored Iran admitting they had an open case against an American missing in the country since 2007.
While the major broadcast networks were busy trying to cover for Obama’s failed legacy, Fox News Channel anchor Bret Baier delivered the new damning revelations during Special Report:
The United Nations’ nuclear watchdog says uranium of man-made origin has been discovered at a location in Iran not declared to the agency. The revelation from the International Atomic Energy Agency, the IAEA, is the first time it has acknowledged allegations made by the U.S. and Israel against Iran are true.
As the liberal BBC reported on Monday, the location the particles were detected at was the same “area where Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has alleged Iran had a ‘secret atomic warehouse,’” during a U.N. address back in 2018. A couple of months ago, Netanyahu alleged “Iranian authorities had cleared and covered up” the site with “gravel.”
At that time, in 2018, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt was too busy conducting a sympathizing interview with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to report on Netanyahu’s address or share it with viewers.
