In an interview a CBS reporter attacked President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad calling Iran a sponsor of terrorism. The reporter also claimed that if Ahmadinejad visited ground zero it would be an insult to all Americans.
Later during the interview Ahmadinejad was asked if he still planned on visiting ground zero. His response was "Well, it was included in my program. If we have the time and the conditions are conducive, I will try to do that."
After CBS continually called his visit insulting to Americans the President had had enough. He scolded the reporter saying, "You are representing a media and you're a reporter. The American nation is made up of 300 million people."
