The day the music died?

That, minus the question mark, is the title of an article in the Chicago Sun Times, regarding the REINSTATEMENT of the ban on music in occupied Iran.

The phrase is a figurative one, used by various writers in reference to a tragic loss or event.

But given the Islamic Republic’s record since its conception in 1979, one of which the editors of the CST, or the writer of the article in particular, are not likely to be ignorant, could the phrase “the day the music died”, could this phrase have been used in a more absurd, ignorant, or oblivious manner?

Instead of launching an English-language television station “to counter” Western propaganda, the Islamist Republic has every reason to continue welcoming it.
