[liberationtech] Iranian Climbers vs. Western Media

Hi Amin,

Not to dissuade you from being angry, but to give you some perspective, I
live in Oregon and hikers get lost almost daily during the fall, for
example. This rarely if ever gets noted on national news, much less
international. Though it might seem silly, if President Obama's dog died,
it well might make national or even international news, because of the
dog's owner. I'm ignorant of Broad Peak, but unless it's particularly tall
or dangerous or there is some kind of political statement being made by the
climbers (egb3 women activist climbers), there is unfortunately not enough
of a dramatic narrative to interest the media. :(

Good luck to you and of course the lost climbers!
