Gil Scott-Heron Was Not Wholly Correct

While the revolution will not be televised, while it takes people going out on the street and fighting and dying,

television and passing around video over the internet and by cell phone is having a major impact. The prime example, of course, is Neda Agha Soltani, who would have just been a statistic, one of the many killed during Saturday's demonstrations in Tehran, if a couple of people hadn't captured her dying on their cellphone cameras.
