After CBS initially ignored the Iranian people’s uprising against their oppressors from Thursday to Saturday, and then downplayed the murder of two protesters and shootings of others earlier on Sunday, White House Correspondent Major Garrett finally dedicated some sort of significant time to the subject (two minutes 31 seconds) for the network when he was filling in on Face The Nation. Unfortunately, he only brushed over the details and questioned if President Trump should be speaking out in support of the people fighting for freedom.
Garrett began the show with an interview with Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and before getting to the interview he delivered an overly simplistic brief about what was going on in the Islamic republic. “We’ve got a lot to get to today, but we want to take note of the situation in Iran where anti-government protests continue for the third day. These are the largest demonstrations in the country in almost ten years. Two protesters were killed overnight,” he reported while getting the length of the protest wrong.
