[See NewsBusters for more.] A former top CIA official had to explain to CBS just why it’s unwise to believe Iranian propaganda claiming that 80 members of the U.S. military were killed during the country's air strike. This Morning co-host Gayle King on Wednesday seemed to equate equally the Iranian propaganda outfit and western reporting, siting “conflicting information.” First, reporter Elizabeth Palmer parroted, “A news agency, Fars News, close to the Revolutionary Guard is claiming that 80 U.S. personnel were killed and 200 wounded, although they provide no evidence.” This is the same news organization, it should be pointed out, that once claimed Iranian scientists had invented a time machine.
