Why Iran Matters

I could paraphrase, but Sullivan’s post nails it, in every way.

I am especially fascinated by the implications for media — the fact that we’re seeing, as Al Giordano says in a blog post quoted by Sullivan (and well worth reading on its own):

“…a great day when the corporate media got pushed out of the way by authentic media from below. What is occurring worldwide, with the Iranian crisis as catalyst, is the emergence of the very kind of media from below that the human race – particularly the working class and the poor – so desperately needs.”

There are very few events in one’s life where you can literally feel the shift of history. This, to me, feels very much like one of them.
