What's On TV? Oh; Nothing!

Among the many reasons President Bush is so incompetent as a fascist (he's so bad, actually, he almost can't wear the title) is that he is unable to stomp out all private media. Any good dictator who's passed Totalitarianism 101 knows that the state should take control of all media and stomp those who don't comply. Bush is worse at this than he is securing the southern border.

Now, say what you want about those plucky Iranians, but they got the heavy hand of government goin' on:
Police in Tehran have begun dismantling satellite dishes from the city's rooftops - part of a campaign to prevent Iranians from watching Western television. The move follows a recent police order that all satellite dishes - officially banned but tolerated until now - be removed. The campaign against satellite television was launched by the Minister for Culture and Islamic Orientation, Hassan Saffar Harandi, who said "we have to halt the West's cultural offensive," on Iran.
