    A 27 year old Iranian woman, Nina Siakhali Moradi (a graduate student
    in architecture) was elected as an alternate to the city council of Qazvin.
    She had promised to fight for the rights of women and youth, which
    angered religious conservatives, who believed that she was not acting
    like a pious Muslim woman should act. So, after her unexpected election,
    she was disqualified on the vague grounds that she failed to conform to
    'Islamic norms'. One senior official was quoted (in 'The Times' of London)
    as complaining, "We don't want a catwalk model (Nina Moradi) on the
    council", apparently feeling that her feminine attractiveness and
    desirability would be too distracting for her male colleagues. So, for now,
    this woman's apparently considered too hot to hold public office in Iran.

    "It's because of their sick mentality that they have a problem with a
    beautiful creature (Nina Moradi) of God."

    Maybe the religious conservatives were jealous. If she were American, she could get a job on FOX news!

    Oh they're coming. The ones who used to sunbathe in string bikinis on the beautiful beaches of Iran. Brunettes with fairly light skin and incredible bodies. Narrow waists, big boobies, chased away from Iran by the Mullahs.

    All you frustrated Iranian men - I'll laugh at you the next time I'm in bed with one of your women here in the USA.

    Given that she's supposed to be an independent voice (she belongs to no
    political party) supporting the rights of women, she might not be welcome
    at the Fox News Channel.

    The Fox New gals tend to be brainy as well as shapely. Ugly and smart aren't related.

    Normbenign seems to have overlooked the fact that Nina Moradi's not a
    member of the US Republican Party, and she's probably also a Muslim.

    This statement of yours(Duchess64) seems to imply that one most be a Republican to work for FOX NEWS and or FOX NEWS is a conservative Republican mouth piece.
    A common misconception but not so.
    Fox News is accused of being blatantly biased towards the right, during its supposedly non-partisan news reports. These false accusations stem from alledged injection of opinion in news stories, selectively preventing liberals a chance to be represented on the channel, and support for high ranking Republican Party members.
    Opponents to this theory cite the fact that Fox News parent company News Corp. overwhelmingly donates campaign contributions to Democrats and the network employs the following liberals:
    Juan Williams
    Alan Colmes
    Kirsten Powers
    Shepard Smith
    Geraldo Rivera
    Mara Liasson
    Bill Schulz
    Susan Estrich
    Bob Beckel
    Santita Jackson
    Simon Rosenberg
    Howard Kurtz

    I think Nina Moradi would fit in just fine there.

    Me too I thought it was going to be another horror story of an acid attack, a popular way of getting back at pretty women in Islamic countries. Google images and "islamic acid attacks" and look at all the pretty pictures if you're not familiar with the phenomenon.

    It's a waste of time to argue with anyone (such as Utherpendragon) who
    believes that the Fox News Channel is always a 'fair and balanced' source
    of news. I can recall at least several studies have concluded that FNC
    is essentially a right-wing propaganda conduit, a mouthpiece for the
    Republican Party (which Utherpendragon apparently supports). Also,
    some, if not many or most, of the supposed 'liberals' working for FNC
    would *not* be considered 'liberals' by anyone except a hard right-wing
    American like Utherpendragon. I have no doubt that Utherpendragnon
    can cite some of his favourite right-wing propaganda websites to bolster
    this absurd belief that Fox News Channel always is 'fair and balanced'.

    Nina Moradi's probably a Shia Muslim (with presumably liberal views).
    How many Muslim women commentators are employed by FNC? Name one.
    I note that Reza Aslan, an American academic, was personally attacked
    in a widely publicized interview by FNC for being a Muslim who wrote a
    book _Zealot_ about Jesus. (His mother and wife are Christians, and
    Reza Aslan himself once converted to Christianity for a while.)
    That shows how FNC would treat a Muslim with an independent mind.

    Reportedly, Nina Moradi's political support has largely come from young
    voters. Youth will become the future of Iran. So Nina Moradi's political
    aspirations may be postponed, but they have not been extinguished.

    These people are self professed liberals with a long track history sweetheart. To dispute that is one of the most ignorants things I (utherpendragon)read from you (Duchess64)yet.
    Secondly, where did I (utherpendragon)say that I(utherpendragon) believe that the Fox News Channel is always a 'fair and balanced' source of news ?
    I (utherpendragon)never said that,honey. Thank you (Duchess64)for the slander.

    is essentially a right-wing propaganda conduit, a mouthpiece for the

    You(Duchess64) name these studies and who conducted them.
    And for the record I (utherpendragon) do not now nor ever supported the Republican party.

    There are some Americans even further to the right of the Republican Party,
    but their opinions should not unduly preoccupy most rational people.
    My comment about Utherpendragon '*apparently* supporting' the
    Republican Party was based upon some of his posts apparently strongly
    opposing US President Obama and the Democratic Party. Given the
    usual context of the US two-party system, when's one against the
    Democratic Party, one tends to be in favor of the Republican Party,
    though there are some exceptions to this general rule.

    Of the names in your list (I'm not going to bother to look them all up),
    the one that I can recognise as a 'liberal' is Susan Estrich, a law professor
    who was the manager of Michael Dukakis's (losing) presidential campaign.
    Geraldo Rivera's not taken seriously by any real journalists, and I most
    recall him now as another American zealous shill for Israel. Also, many
    American so-called 'liberals' (including some writers in this forum) would be
    considered 'conservative' or even 'right-wing' by most European standards.

    I also am not going to waste any more of my time looking up and citing
    sources that I expect you would never read or consider seriously.
    I am not being paid to be your personal research assistant.

    I asked you to name even one Muslim woman commentator employed by
    the Fox News Channel. I'm not holding my breath waiting for your answer.

    For further reading (not that I expect Utherpendragon to read it):

    and, yes, cites his sources).

    The oversights are all yours.
