Speaking of 'delusional'... That is not Rouhani.

I understand that Al-Jazeera America is based in New York, NY. However, I did not expect that a news organization of such massive scale would confuse the Iranian Minister of Foreign affairs, Mohammad Javad Zarif, and the President of Iran, Hassan Rouhani. The Al-Jazeera Headquarters, is located in Doha, Qatar, less than a days drive from the Iranian capital of Tehran.
At first I assumed I was just “trolling”, but then I decided to flip the coin. Imagine if a Fox News or MSNBC report had done such a thing, the other network would chastise them. I can see it now, “How are we supposed to expect accurate news from a network who does not even know the president of the country they are reporting on?”. Imagine if Al-Jazeera (proper) posted an article confusing Secretary of State John Kerry and the President Barrack Obama.
Again, this may not be a big deal, and they will probably change it in a few hours; especially given that I commented on the original post. What about the simply aesthetic differences between a Shia Cleric (Rouhani) and a balding diplomat (Zarif)? The worst part of the situations is that it shows a picture of the President of both countries later in the article… Or maybe the sheer irony that the word “delusion” is in the article…
