British broadcaster and journalist Jon Snow has reported from around the world and interviewed numerous leaders, including Nelson Mandela and Hugo Chavez (and famously refused an O.B.E. - Officer of the Order of the British Empire). In a 2006 interview with British Prime Minister Tony Blair on Channel 4 News, Snow got Blair to admit a bombshell. Blair was forced to concede that he had never even heard of Mossadegh!

Snow, who has reported extensively from Iran, proposed that Gordon Brown travel to Iran within his first 100 days in office. He notes that Foreign Secretary Jack Straw visited Iran five times. During Snow's own visit to Tehran, he observed a society that is "ancient and modern, fundamentalist and secular, authoritarian and liberal." He continues:
