The hope and heartbreak of Arab journalism أمل وأسى من الصحافة العربية


Once again Issandr el Amrani tells us what is different and what hasn’t changed too for Arab journalism. I prefer his words of hope. He writes: “It is not only that bloggers are widening the quantity of information available in a region where political gossip is often more trusted than official statements. They are also deepening the quality and breadth of debate with the abandon that only the rush of ego-driven publishing (and anonymity) can provide.”
