Video: Is the media ignoring Iraq’s protest movement?


On the ‘Friday of Perseverance,’ Iraqi residents took to the streets to demand political reform, an end to corruption, and an improvement of public services. Iraq’s al-Rafidain TV interviewed writer and political analyst Dr. Abdul Karim al-Alluji to discuss the media blackout on the protests occurring in Iraq. He said that while Iraq is witnessing a revolution similar to those of its neighbors, much of it has been unreported. He stated that he doesn’t know if it is deliberate but that it is unfortunate and that the country has been “left to suffer on its own from hardships, killings, and destruction.”
