A New Year, a New Beginning

In the past few days many of my (non-Persian) friends have told me they are a bit confused about what's going on in Iran. What are good sources of news if you are not connected to a well-informed web of Facebook and Twitter users? Here's my list of some of the English language sites I frequent.

Radio Zamaneh has started translating about 3 stories a day for its English site.

Tehran Bureau is a well informed and important site and especially in the weeks after the June elections served as a source for CNN and other news networks.

Very good up-to-date site with many articles and videos.

United 4 Iran and Vote 4 Iran are activists sites, but frequently update with newsstories. United in English, Vote in both English and Persian

Persian 2 English collects stories about the struggle and translates them into English.

Andrew Sullivan doesn't exclusively post about Iran, but it's good to take note when he does.
