1/ A short thread about the way the #IranLobby shapes American media narratives on Iran.
This one is about @NBCNews contributor Hooman Majd (@hmajd), but it could just as easily be about any of the major outlets.

2/ Hooman Majd appears regularly on NBC & MSNBC as an analyst. He’s often introduced simply as an author and commentator. He’s similarly introduced in other media. Here are some recent examples from @washingtonpost , @thedailybeast , @NPR and the @theintercept.
4) The NYT’s journalists (@ntabrizy) cite him as no less than an “oracle” on Iran.

Frustrating how @TwitterSupport suspends #Iranian dissidents like #HeshmatAlavi while #IranLobby is enjoying the #FreedomOfSpeech, press & safety in #USA using full name, picture & verified @Twitter accounts.

When @jack Dorsey, @ev-an Williams & @biz Stone founded @Twitter in 2006 it began as a toy for online flirtation but during the #IranElection in 2009 it suddenly turned to a serious platform for #Politics representing #FreedomofExpression & #FreedomOfSpeech in #Iran
