Iranian Media in English

Iran Reference: External link This page contains extensive links (Mostly in English) to background information about Iran for those who are interested to travel or do business in Iran.

The major news sources inside Iran are IRNA and Tehran Times. IRNA has been a very reliable source for official news about Iran. It sometimes just ignores major news developments. Tehran Times is a well-connected conservative publication and prints stories that other newspapers would not dare to cover. It relies on IRNA for a bulk of its stories. It features daily political commentaries. They have been right on the money many times.

The other media sources in Iran rely on major newswires such as AFP for their top stories. Outside sources such as IranMania also rely on the newswires for most of their news. They aggregate the news from different sources and provide links to top stories.
Thus, the news at these sites are very similar since it's difficult to obtain original content from Iran. A number of sites post newspaper clippings in Persian or translate articles from Iranian papers.
Most Iranian sites like this one have subscribed to the Moreover newsfeed or an RSS newsfeed.

The Guardian Unlimited has published the most objective and revealing stories about Iran in recent years. It is my favorite source of original and unbiased articles about Iran and the Middle East.
