Abstract:   (950 Views)
On the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, Radio Farda website, as one of the oppsite  mainstream media against the Islamic Republic, with the aim of presenting its arbitrary reading and narration of the history of the Islamic Revolution, performed a series of dialogues with political and cultural activists entitled as "forty years, forty dialogues". In this research, the main effort has been focused on understanding how Radio Farda is representing and framing the history of the Islamic Revolution to public opinion. In the position of data collection, the text of the conversations was collected and in the framework of the interpretive approach, using the method of content analysis, the network of concepts and themes was examined. The analysis of these interviews shows that the arbitrary imagery representation and construction of the second Pahlavi period, along with an inverse introduction of the revolutionaries and Imam Khomeini and the denigration of the Islamic Republic, formed the main theme of these interviews and ultimately the unity of the opposition of the IRI was introduced as an inevitable necessity for getting out of the current situation.
Keywords: Radio Farda, Islamic Revolution, Mainstream, Pahlavi Government
