Top New York Times "Ugly" reporter caught on hot mic urging reporters NOT to interview prominent Iranian dissident


A top "Ugly" New York Times reporter and Iranian-American journalist, who focuses on writing about Iran, was caught on a hot mic urging her colleagues not to interview the “crazy” Alinejad Masih, one of the most prominent Iranian dissidents.

Erick Erickson underscores why this is so important:
