dc.description.abstract Media of governments are vehicles of governmental messages. A medium of a government carries the government’s foreign policy messages to other countries. A government’s message on foreign policy passes through one of the government’s media to reach a target in another country. A government’s medium mediates between the government’s message on foreign policy and the message’s target in another country. Therefore, I used the term, mediated policy, to refer to those governmental media messages on foreign policy sent to Iraq during the election in 2010. I hypothesized that US Mediated Policy, Iranian Mediated Policy, and Saudi Mediated Policy are three latent constructs interacting in a structural model where they affect a fourth latent variable, Iraqi Independent Media. I ran a content analysis of international and domestic media coverage of the Iraqi election of 2010. I measured the saliences of two frames, former Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and former Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi. The analysis shows: (1) US foreign policy simultaneously deals with two opposing regional policies, Saudi and Iranian. (2) English represents a barrier to Iraqi independent media. (3) There are significant foreign policy messages carried by media of foreign governments to Iraq, which evidently affect Iraqi independent media. en_US
