Iran, as a pivotal state in the Middle East, has always played a key role in international equations in different eras. Since the 1979 revolution in Iran, due to reasons such as war, embargo, etc, Iranian’s direct contact with outside world has been limited. These limitations have caused the mainstream media to impose their policy on the outer look to Iran.
These media include Iranian state media and apparently independent media outside Iran. Such selective look, either inside or outside of Iran, does not allow independent voices to be heard by people around the world. On the other hand, lack of ٍEnglish language knowledge in Iran has led to the fact that news is reflected abroad be monopolized by certain groups.
These groups often have problem with the Iranian government, like MKO (Mojahedin Khalgh Organization), or are financially supported by Iran’s historical enemies. The Iran Project site is an unprofessional news website which has been ran by a group of Iranians inside and outside of Iran to influence the policy of Iranian government and foreign media to the extent it can.
