ICBPS- Iran Lobby: Maziar Bahari, 53, is acting as one of the Iranian lobbyists in the West. He is not very well known by many Iranians inside, and not many U.S. officials are aware of his connections with the NIAC.
Maziar Bahari, was a reporter for Newsweek from 1998 to 2011. He is also one of the first Iranian-Canadians, who supported NIAC in the United States.
Bahari launched IranWire in 2014 for allegedly empowering Iranian citizen journalists by creating a forum in which young Iranians can discuss national and local news. This claim has never been fulfilled. And, a number of Iranian journalists such as Reza Haghighatnejad, Shima Shahrabi, Aida Ghajar, Shahed Alavi, and Masih Alinejad who collaborate with Iranwire have repeatedly shown their considerable animus against Iranian people’s interests.
IranWire, owned and managed by Maziar Bahari, has never published any reports or articles about NIAC and has kept Iranian audiences in the dark in regards with the lobby groups and supporters of the Islamic Republic’s policies in the West.
Maziar Bahari’s book signing event was organized by NIAC in 2011.
Maziar is one of the main figures in the propaganda machine of the Islamic Republic whose Wedding-Love-Image-style with Moqtada Sadr is available online.

The so-called journalist created Cult of the Chameleon documentary was commissioned by Al Jazeera, and was highly acclaimed by NIAC that posted it on its YouTube channel.
The biased-documentary supposedly granted permission to work in Iran as a journalist.
گند گزارش الجزیره هم بزودی در خواهد آمد. چند سال پیش هم مازیار بهاری مستندی در تخطئهٔ مجاهدین خلق را برای الجزیره ساخت (Cult of the chameleon) که برای او نوعی مجوز فعالیت در ایران بود.
جمهوری اسلامی بارها حرفهایش را از زبان رسانههای خارجی بیان کرده است: راهی گرانتر ولی مؤثرتر!

The Islamic Republic has repeatedly expressed its words in the language of foreign media: A more expensive but more effective way!
The report will be completed over time.
Institute of Capacity Building for Political Studies, (ICBPS) publishes articles, analyses, and reports online with no limit. ICBPS has been founded by a group of journalists and activists to provide a great opportunity for those freedom fighters who are being censored by mainstream media.
