Kambiz Hosseini & Saman Arbabi

Kambiz Hosseini and Saman Arbabi say that completely censoring their Iranian satirical news show, "Parazit," is as impossible as stopping car theft.

Editors note: This piece is interesting because Jon touches on the hyperbole issue, that is so abused in America, and the reaction though in muse from the guests is 'we don't care'. This illustrates the point of just how silly our media is to others of the 'thinking' type.

The piece in general touches on the very important issues of freedom and oppression in Iran. Jon points out that Parazit (the show) does not need to be hyperbolic though, because unlike media news pundits in America, they are dealing with 'actual' tyrants, where in America, we just make stuff up to make people look like tyrants through hyperbolic speech.

There is an important lesson in that for America...
