State TV: ‘Forgive me for the 13 years I told you lies’

Iran state TV sees at least 2 news anchors quit: ‘Forgive me for the 13 years I told you lies’.


At least two Iranian journalists at a state-owned media outlet reportedly resigned from their jobs, with one of them apologizing to viewers for “the 13 years I told you lies.”

As Tehran continues to grapple with the fallout from protests stemming from a cover-up of its accidental downing of a Ukrainian airliner, TV anchor Gelare Jabbari addressed her viewers on an Instagram post that appears to have been deleted.

“It was very hard for me to believe that our people have been killed,” the post read, according to The Guardian. “Forgive me that I got to know this late. And forgive me for the 13 years I told you lies.”

Two other news anchors at the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) thanked their supporters in separate statements. READ MORE

  2. Can you imagine our US Fake News LIARS honorably resigning??
    Me neither.
    Picture Geo Snafoopigulus kicking and screaming as he’s tossed off the roof of Rockefeller Center.
