No, This is Not a Parody.

Sean Penn, who sucks up countless millions acting in American movies and who, in his spare time, pontificates as to the evil of the very county that has given him his charmed life will be writing for the San Francisco Chronicle on the presidential "elections" in Iran:

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Hollywood actor Sean Penn, adopting the role of a journalist, scribbled in his notebook as Friday prayer worshippers in Tehran chanted "Death to America."

Penn, 44, in Iran on a brief assignment for the San Francisco Chronicle ahead of presidential elections on June 17, may be one of the best known faces in film, but he went unrecognized by the 6,000 faithful at Tehran University.

Working with a translator, Penn took copious notes as hardline cleric Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati urged the congregation to vote en masse "to make America angry."

The actor, who visited Iraq before and after the U.S.-led invasion in 2003 and wrote an account of his second trip for the Chronicle, told Reuters he had decided to come to Iran because of growing tensions between Washington and Tehran.

The United States accuses Iran of developing nuclear weapons and sponsoring terrorism. Iran denies the charges.

Stalin called people of Penn's ilk (Communist apologists in the west) "useful idiots" and, while Stalin was one of the 20th centuries most evil of men, he was certainly no fool. He learned, early on that there were those in the west who would willingly do his bidding and he was right.

Clearly, this is just another example of the mainstream media's total abandonment of objectivity in favor of naked propaganda. Why Sean Penn? Obviously because they know, in advance, what he will write and they know that it will fit their twisted world view. Anyone who agrees with them is considered an "intellectual" and those who do not are "buffoons." Penn has a long history of anti-Americanism and, as such, his take on this so-called "election" is highly valuable commentary and opinion from an "informed" member of the "artistic community". What amazes me is just how transparent they have become.

Acoording to this poll, confidence in the media has sunk to an all-time low, which would appear to mean that the American public has sensed their duplicity. Let us hope that these numbers are correct.
