The lousiest book to come out on Iran: revising the memory of the Shah

So this Cooper, author of this book, stumbled on an amazing discovery: he says that the despotic Shah was not bad but that Western media was manipulated into thinking that: " Cooper claims, for example, that Abol Hassan Bani-Sadr, a nationalist-left activist who deposed the shah with Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeiniand later served as the first president, told him how they manipulated the Western media’s coverage of Iran." Wow. (thanks Fred)
