I was curious as to what sources do you use to get the news/updates related to Iran? I use Yahoo news and do seach for 'Iran'. As for Farsi sites, I kind of like roozonline. I also find the news section of Iranian.com useful. Any other suggestions?

Thank you allby hossein.hosseini on Mon May 11, 2009 09:25 AM PDT
Just a quick note to thank you all for your great suggestions. There were many that I was not aware of. I have found that by reading a variety of news sources, one could get a better sense of what's going on.

I recommend Asia Times. There are a few interesting regulars including Pepe Escobar and Gareth Porter.

I can warmly recommend The Guardian and International Herald Tribune (Global Edition of The New York Times) to you: both world's leading online newspapers, both platforms for liberal opinions, both organs of the middle class.

You all just gave IR a tool to filter out the Sites they may not have been aware of. They apparantly spend Mils of $$ each year for that purpose.
If you don't believe me just ask someone in Iran.
Another Iranian news sourceby Anonymous on Sat May 09, 2009 01:47 PM PDT
Please also try this as a source.

in the Iranian.com news section we get contributed articles by anybody who wants to recommend one from any source.
But on the right column we have major news agencies both in Farsi and English, and they are updated multiple times a day. They tend to escape notice, but there is a collection there.
Scroll down on the right column, you'll see what I mean.

Mr. Hosseini, I find..by Monda on Fri May 08, 2009 10:33 PM PDT
Deutsche Welle and Asia Times the most reliable. Besides Irandokht, roozonline and iranian.com. Balatarin is hard on the eyes!
not a loaded one, right?by Reza 41 on Fri May 08, 2009 10:04 PM PDT
of cours I check bbc, radio farda also, but regardless how much they try pass honest news but on certain time they insinuate what ever they want , IOW, they give us already loaded news, so check and balance is always is key and insure we know the real true news. peac bro
made in IRAN is much more trustable than ...

Greetings Mr. Hosseini:
I use Google News and search for Iran, use gooya.com to access various news sources, read gooya.com's Gooya News, and use Iranian.com's News section. Gooya is a good portal for accessing a long list of news sources about Iran. I read and listen to European news websites such as Radio France International, Deutsche Welle, and the BBC.
I find the French and German news stations the most accurate and objective about news and human rights issues in Iran, an area of interest for me. Rooz Online has pretty good reporting, too.
Though I occasionally watch VOA and BBC Persian's news and analysis programs, I don't put a lot of stock in what they have to say. The site Iran Human Rights Defenders' site (both in Farsi and in English), is also a source I routinely check.
I hope this is helpful to you.
Balatarin.comby farshad-jon (not verified) on Fri May 08, 2009 05:32 PM PDT
I always use Balatarin.com.
