What it’s about: The article, titled “Interview: Iranian politician says U.S. hegemony challenges world peace, stability,” publishes excerpts of an interview with Asadollah Badamchian, secretary-general of Iran’s Islamic Coalition Party (ICP), that among other topics affirms that Washington’s hegemony poses a main challenge to global peace and stability.
Why it’s misleading: Although the interview is credited to Xinhua News Agency, there is no detail on how, when and who conducted the interview. The text is limited to include several quotes from Asadollah Badamchian, secretary-general of Iran’s Islamic Coalition Party (ICP), in reference to U.S. leadership and the country’s recent position on the Iran Nuclear Deal agreed July 14, 2015. But other than re-publishing quotes, the piece offers no further detail or context on the interview.
