Tehran Uprising, No US Televising

Perhaps not surprising, but it's become clear that Iran's mullahs have stolen the election in declaring Ahmadinejad the landslide winner.

Andrew Sullivan is running some great posts on developments as the state cracks down on protestors. Juan Cole breaks down vote counts from various regions that just underscore the level of fraud.

Iran's own election monitors call the result invalid.

"Losing" candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi has reportedly been arrested.

Remarkably, none of the American cable stations are giving this story much coverage. Even CNN International just gave it a couple of "headline" piece treatment on the half-hour. Amazing -- and pathetic.

Apparently, in the 21st century, the revolution will be tweeted and blogged -- not televised.
