In a society which is transitioning from authoritarianism to democracy, the media is largely politicized. All political parties in Iraq own at least several media outlets to advance their political goals. The media controlled by political parties, the government or the state are predominantly ideological. They are not there to represent the true image of the society, but rather to represent the image they are interested in showing. In such media, neutrality and objectivity are almost always lost. Thus, the mission of Iraqi News is by no means an easy one. Its aim is not to tell people what to believe, but to allow them to make informed choices through access to unbiased information.
