Tehran, 15 June 2009
Three years ago, in an atmosphere of excitement and expectation, Iranians went to the polls to select their President. Within 72 hours, that election became a catalyst for protest, anger, hope, and impassioned debate not only about the outcome but about the course of the Islamic Republic.
Beginning today and for the next two weeks, EA WorldView --- which began its Iran Live Coverage on 13 June 2009 --- will be carrying a series of articles and reflections about those events. We will be re-posting our original entries while considering what has and has not changed and what is yet to come.
We begin this morning with James Miller's reflections on 12 June 2009, Election Day, "A Day That Changed the Country, the Region, and the Media". We also have two articles that we posted at the time, "A Preview of the Presidential Election" and "How Not to Cover Iran's Elections --- The Awards Ceremony".
