On Thursday June 15, 2006, The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) will be holding a briefing titled "Must See Iran TV II" on Capitol Hill. The briefing is sponsored by Senators Rick Santorum (R-PA) and Evan Bayh (D-IN).
Media are invited to view translated clips from Iranian television channels, many of whose themes include the Iranian nuclear and arms threat, martyrdom, oil and political threats and anti-Americanism.
The event is a follow up from last year's "Must See Iran TV."
Following brief opening remarks, there will be a video presentation of recent broadcast clips. The session will close with remarks by MEMRI President Yigal Carmon and a question and answer session.
These clips have been recorded by MEMRI from Iranian TV and translated from Farsi into English.
