It is possible that the post is for “free publicity.” If so, that is rather grotesque. It is possible that the motives of the post are less than pure. But I think it is premature to jump to that conclusion without hearing more from the poster.
That said, let’s look at the *actual post*
The fact is that this is not a “you tube” video in of itself. This was not made for youtube and it was not put together by someone ranting into his speaker camera.
MEMRI has taken heat from certain quarters as presenting a biased view of Middle Eastern media. The complaint generally goes that all they show is the awful stuff that Middle Eastern media puts out and never shows anyone in the Islamic media/political scene in a good light. The complaint is also that MEMRI doesn’t “even handedly” show bad Israelis.
Yet, MEMRI has never been accused of a false translation and the nasty media of the Middle East really is out there in spades.
So, Iranian state television blames the Jews for the Newton shootings. Is this really surprising?
If Fox news is dangerous propaganda, and we hate that, what is the power of State run propaganda 24/7? Is the story (that they brainwash their people this way) less important or somehow not true?
So there are American anti-semites who blame the Jews… Go figure. But is the story that there are American assholes like this somehow not true?
