Karroubi stands tall:

Ettemad-e Melli reports that reformist candidate Mehdi Karroubi has sent an open letter to Ezatallah Zarghami, head of the Iranian state media, criticising the media for being "biased and dishonest and engaging in a campaign of misinformation regarding the recent protests." In the letter, Karroubi says that Ahmadinejad supporters are adherents of an "archaic and reactionary form of Islam, that is, Taliban Islam". He says, "It is the immense unreliablility of the state media that has led people to seek foreign sources for obtaining the truth".
