LGF notes CNN and BBC will be promoting tourism in Iran. I can see the ad now:

[fade into a gallows with a body slowly swinging in the morning breeze, silhouetted against a beautiful mountain range over which the sun is rising]

"Where else can you see a teenage girl executed for the crime of being molested by her brother?"

"Come to Iran, the land of the friendly mullahs!"

[zoom in on face of hanging girl, which suddenly comes to life and smiles as her bound hands come up with a "thumbs-up" gesture as two grinning robed and bearded figures enter from the sides of the picture and put their arms around her, while somewhere a band strikes up "I've Got a Feeling I'm Into Something Good", because it's just another happy day in Iran]
