Call it a revolution, call it a coup d'etat (one Iranian election official did), call it status quo, call it whatever. If you tried to find any substantive and breaking news on what is going on in Iran on Saturday afternoon your cable news outlets certainly weren't going to help you, proving once again that if you're going to have a revolution, you'd better do it on a Tuesday when everyone is at work and not during the weekend. Print publications seem to be behind as well, at least their Internet editions.
That said, the Internet, especially Twitter, and to some extent YouTube, is alive with news, some you can trust, some you have to remain skeptical about. But hey, that's just like the any news source.
It is still far too early to determine what is really going on, but it seems like Iran's government infrastructure is falling a part over what appears to be a stolen election. There are reports of journalists and bloggers being shut down, along with various plugs being pulled on communication services. A supposed leak puts Ahmadinejad in 3rd place instead of the official state reporting of him winning the election with 62% of the vote.
Something's happening and if you want to find out what, turn off your boob tube and check out the Inner Tubes.
Maybe there is more than one revolution going on this weekend.
