The Arab world has something to say, attention please


And it is going to say it whether or not anyone cares or tries to silence it. Salama Ahmet Salama makes this point eloquently in his column in the April 12 issue of al Ahram weekly. The Arab world is a different world. New is everywhere. “Now it is necessary for anyone working in the media to be trained in more than one medium. Journalists now need higher levels of professional skills to handle an increasing variety of media forms,” he writes. What needs to be done? Learn how to do this work and do it well. Don’t give up your right to think. “Governments,” he writes, “are no longer in a position to tell us right from wrong.”
