CNN responds to Iranian hacking accusation

In a news conference Monday in Tehran, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Hassan Qashqavi made some accusations about western media outlets. Qashqavi accused “everyone working” at the BBC, the Voice of America and CNN of pursuing the “weakening of Iran’s unity” and seeking the “disintegration” of the country all because, he said, of ties to Israel and Zionism. In addition, Qashqavi specifically claimed that CNN “officially” trains people to “hack government and foreign ministry” Web sites
