Israel. Iran. USA. According
to the results of a newly released BBC poll, those are the three most negatively
perceived countries in the world, in that order. (North
Korea was fourth).
For the Islamic Republic News Agency [IRNA], the bad PR about Iran's arch-enemies must have seemed like pure gold. The only catch is that in order to capitalize on it, they would also have to mention that Iran itself closely follows as the 2nd most negative country in the list, right? Nah... They simply omitted Iran from the results. "The poll", reported IRNA, "...showed Israel was followed closely by the US and North Korea".
