02.02.11 | 1 min read | Text by Steven Aftergood

Key characteristics of seventeen leading Iranian newspapers are described in a wall poster (large pdf) prepared last year by the DNI Open Source Center.

With an estimated circulation of 350,000-450,000, “Hamshahri appears to be the most widely read newspaper in Iran thanks to its voluminous classified advertisement supplement, attracting individuals seeking to buy a car, house or major goods and services. Others buy it for its football pages.”

A copy of the poster was obtained by Secrecy News.  See “Ownership, Affiliation, and Influence of Major Iranian Newspapers,” Open Source Center, March 2010.
