Another alternative news media – Press TV

Press TV is an Iranian owned international new channel that broadcast news and documentaries from Iranian perspective. The format is quite close to that of another alternative news media, the Russian owned Russia Today channel. The website is at http://www.presstv.ir/.

Here is how Press TV presents recent news of Sydney Council votes  to refer Australian early settlement in Australia as invasion. Is it really an invasion, given that there wasn’t any military offensive campaign to occupy the territory? Well, the divided  Aboriginals were just too weak to counter any armed British parties, and  attempts to put up resistance were easily quashed by British soldiers. Given that there is an estimated population of about a million aboriginals then, and most of them were then wiped out, calling it an invasion is rather mild actually.
