Abstract: 

In this study, the researcher has delt with a comparative study of populist speech in Iranian Media during the area of 2007-2008. The general purpose of this research is to determine the coverage extent of diverse topics by newspapers with different political inclinations from a populist standpoint and their comparative analysis. Therefore the main question is: Which Iranian newspaper shows a greater potential in regard to populist speech during the 2007-2008 area.
Keyhan and Etemad Melli newspapers were chosen as the focus of the study.
In the next step, in answer to the main question of the research, a number of hypotheses were formed. Next, the actual research was performed through determination of the related populist factors.
To assess the accuracy of the stated hypotheses, out of 282 volumes printed during this period by each of the newspapers under study, 52 Monday volumes were chosen by simple randomness, through content analysis method and based on Cochran formula. These two newspapers were quiet dissimilar in comparison and were operating under different situations, both from the aspect of political standpoints and cultural-social approaches and also from the aspect of media framework and structure (what was printed and circulated).
Studies show that Keyhan newspaper of having a greater potential to cover topics and address issues which can be viewed somehow as emphasizing and approving of populist speech, compared with Etemad Melli newspaper. In fact, it can be clearly stated here that the potential for media populism was greater in Keyhan.
