News Bulletins without humanist stories and reporter missed the coverage…
As of September 2015, 'Iraqi Media House' releases its first series of monitoring visual content of Iraqi Satellite Channels, through a group of reports who deal with several axes, focus precisely on human rights, and observe the indicators of incitement plus feeders of sectarian or ethnic sensitivities .
The basic aim of such observatories, particularly to TV, is to get rough indicators of Iraqi channels performance, as well as extent of their impact on people's moods, and the relation of that with consolidation and protection of the values of tolerance, coexistence, and civil peace; additionally making information available freely to the public.
Such an attention paid by Iraqi Media House comes as a result of utmost importance of video broadcasting role in influencing public mood, and the tremendous ability of changing societal and political concepts.
During this observatory our team superintend the varying degrees of interest by the makers of bulletins and news programs specialized of humanitarian issues.
Throughout seven days (31 August - 6 September) the observers superintend Humanitarian Stories broadcast level in news bulletins for a sample included nine Iraqi satellite channels, from the side of priority the story has earned during a news bulletin, in regard to the broadcast timing & period, the presence of the correspondent at event site, also the diversity of speakers, and the full presentation to a humanitarian crisis.
Introduction:
A Humanitarian Story aims to add more depth in handling news bulletin, and tries to soften the news content by getting close to people's lives; itis characterized as the staunchest through the time in between T.V. writing types.
Humanist Story writer has two options, either to write about topics outside the fast expert style, like writing about people's concerns and other aspects of their lives, such as visiting a distinctive place; Or to write about events and civic activities that work for reforming the society without hustle, or search for the margin that makes us understand the event and its background and depth of its aspects; In such case, the journalist needs to look for new sources, away from those which consumed during press coverage.
IMH observers have noted that there is a confusion in the way and mechanism of producing humanitarian stories, especially since many of writing and production standards are seemingly contradictory or incomprehensible by newsroom, and sometimes they are almost non-existent; but the report has adoptedmonitoring the way of dealing with the humanitarian event more than standards measurement of the humanitarian story.

• Al Rafidain Channel
It did not present humanitarian stories during the whole monitoring period, but it made a daily basis news related to humanitarian conditions for detainees, displaced people, and refugees.
Notes:
I. About %80 percent of humanitarian stories have been prepared inside the newsrooms with no communication between the correspondents and the events, in addition to borrowing some stories from global paid broadcasting channels.
II. The absence of the good quality in broadcasting humanitarian stories, especially when using the poor-quality video clips without reference to the source.
III. Some channels reiterated, on an unjustified manner, the same humanitarian story or diversified its stories for the same axis.
IV. Nearly %60 of the stories based on images and videos which were published on social networks, and many of the stories were broadcast as a reaction to what was spread in networking sites.
V. Some channels haven't taken in consideration, in disseminating of humanitarian stories, the standpoints of all concerned parties, but relied in its coverage on one side.
VI. Some Iraqi TV Channels have bestowed their stories upon partisan political opinion, and resorted to enticing formulations, as in dealing with Iraqi detainees' stories.
VII. Some channels broadcasted video footage and stories, as 'certified documents', within their humanitarian stories, but they neither confirmed their validity, nor indicated their source.
VIII. The absence of basic standards that define the form and importance of the humanitarian stories production, including the diversity of research in stories and problems of a community, the way of their presentation, as well as the priority of such stories' broadcast;Iraqi media house finds that this kind of stories have not been tested well in newsrooms.
IX. Some channels, which are funded by political parties, have specific standpoints toward issues of society which set different standards, particularly in manufacturing humanitarian stories that has been long linked with a specific political pivot, even indirectly.
