Armageddonism's Effect on Mass Media

The Iranian response to the wild myth that Ahmadinejad said he wants to wipe Israel off the map have been ignored by the media.

Here's why I think that happened:

  • The belief system of Armageddonists is vindicated only if Israel has an enemy bent on destroying it.
  • The media wants to give people what they want to hear and therefore ignores what challenges popular opinion because it will be perceived as propaganda.
