The spin cycle is alive and well in Tehran.

If you think Ahmadinejad was embarrassed at all for what happened to him in Columbia University, I have to say, you are very optimistic about this man and this regime…

The official news agency of the regime wrote [Persian],

Strong, scientific and accurate answers of the President of Iran to the questions raised by the academicians in Columbia University made them applause and showed that they are not affected by the propaganda of the American Media. They officially asserted in a poll that they agreed with Ahmadinejad’s statements. The American televisions, which thought tricky questions will surprise the president, showed the program live. These sources, some of which are controlled by the Zionists, were shocked after the results of the poll came out.

According to the poll, the majority of the participants agreed that Columbia’s invitation of Ahmadinejad was a good decision…. Many Americans called the network to emphasize on the importance of freedom of speech in America…

A few people, some of whom were connected to the Zionists, protested against Ahmadinejad’s speech, but the poll showed that these were only a minority in the American society.

Read the rest. Via state propaganda and censorship, Ahmadinejad’s visit is being spun into a victory for the Islamic revolution. Just imagine what the mullahs’ press could have done with a photo of him at Ground Zero.
