Tabloids Have Field Day with Ahmadinejad

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's address at New York's Columbia University produces screaming headlines in New York's tabloid newspapers: "Madman" in The New York Post and "The Evil Has Landed" in The Daily News. Overseas publications are more restrained and more circumspect.

Ali Ansari, professor of Iranian history at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, discusses media coverage of the event with Renee Montagne.
