Iranian News Standards

This could be from The Onion, but it’s actually from the Islamic Republic News Agency:

Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance said standard of news and news reporting has been upgraded in the past two years and its reason is President Ahmadinejad, who is the most news maker and also the most news friendly personality.
Mohammad Hossein Saffar Harandi during President Ahmadinejad’s visit to IRNA headquarter on Wednesday evening said, “The president by his visits to the cities and provinces presented good promises to the people.”

He continued, “A man who does not sacrifice Iranian glory and honour before its enemies and resisted for nations’ values and honour became the most news maker of his time.”

Who believes this stuff?
