of this paper is to study the effect of media use especially
the Internet on political behavior of Tehran University students. To this end,
the effect of Internet use is investigated not only by considering the amount

Internet is used more frequently than other media for
tracking political news, with nearly 90 percent of
respondents indicating that they use the Internet for the purpose of finding
political news. Participation in the demonstrations among non-traditional
political behaviors, and voting in elections among traditional political
behaviors are more common among the students than the other political

In this article, we examine audiences’ interaction with news media. The main question is what the status of news and news media is in the everyday life of the audiences. For this purpose, using semi-structured interview method, 29 individual and group interviews with 54 Tehran citizens from different age and sex groups were conducted.
Results show that the news presence in the audiences’ everyday life is ritual. The experience of news absence makes this rituality more apparent. Interviewees simultaneously confront with news from both domestic and foreign news televisions (which are contained established official discourse in Iran and rival discourses) because of five specific reasons and uses: access to the reality of an event, access to knowledge about rival discourse, coercion and monopoly, trust on news of domestic and foreign televisions, attraction and professionalism. In addition, the pattern of news consumption among Tehranian audiences can be categorized into five levels: weak, medium, strong (discrete - purposive, continuous, non-purposive, and continuous- purposive). Moreover the level of trust on media among people who have a strong relationship with the media is low due to the variety of available discourses.

Three Al-Alam TV channels, Press TV and Hispanic TV channels broadcast news in Arabic, English, and Spanish. In this paper, with a comparative study of international news networks and their performance analysis in the area of branding for the media, a proposal is proposed to integrate the brand of the International Broadcasting Network (IRIB). Based on the proposal, these three networks will continue to operate alongside the International News Network with a name and brand, and each will be known as a branch network of English, Arabic, Spanish and Persian. This can be achieved through the creation of an integrated brand management, which will strengthen the brand's value in the international audiovisual organization.
