Iraq Moves toward Regulating Its Own Electronic Media
Iraq Fact of the Day

Iraq's first independent regulatory body is a step closer to having a full staff. The National Communications and Media Commission of Iraq -- which will regulate the country's burgeoning electronic media such as radio, broadcast and Internet services -- now has a CEO and three commissioners in place. Part of the commission's charge will be to work with Iraqi journalists' associations to advance professional standards and ethics. This is yet another example of the new Iraq taking control of its future.
