Actor Sean Penn has taken on the role of reporter, covering the elections in Iran. Penn is in the country as a correspondent for the San Francisco Chronicle. The once and future Spicoli has some experience in the Middle East since he went to Iraq in 2003 just before the U.S. led invasion. The article seems to make a big deal of him being at a prayer meeting where attendees shouted "Death to America", but shouldn't a decent reporter for any news organization be in situations just like this? Seems that detail being included has more to do with Penn's outspoken political views than anything else.
