It's not surprising to see bloggers take sides on the alleged vote-rigging in the Iranian elections. But media outlets typically try to remain objective. Not in the case of Fark, the not-news site. A couple days ago, the Fark founder and CEO Drew Curtis decided to put a green band around the letter "K" in Fark.

The green band shows support for Hussein Mousavi, who on June 13, 2009, was defeated by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran in a disputed presidential election. 

Why is Fark taking sides? Watch Drew Curtis explain.
