Live Blog: Presidential Debate In Iran, Round Two
"Persian Letters" blogger Golnaz Esfandiari and RFE/RL editors live-blogged as Iran's eight presidential candidates debated social issues on June 5, in the second of three televised preelection debates. The first debate had focused on the economy but was roundly criticized, even by the candidates themselves, as political pabulum. Make up your own mind as to whether the second installment was any better.

Written by RFE/RL editors and correspondents, Transmission serves up news, comment, and the odd silly dictator story. While our primary concern is with foreign policy, Transmission is also a place for the ideas -- some serious, some irreverent -- that bubble up from our bureaus. The name recognizes RFE/RL's role as a surrogate broadcaster to places without free media. You can write us at transmission+rferl.org
