Support Our Future Leaders

The Media Line is known for producing truthful, unbiased journalism and we are teaching future journalists to do the same. Through our signature Press and Policy Student Program, The Media Line provides an innovative opportunity for students to globalize their educational experience by connecting to an active news bureau in the Middle East, studying journalism and public policy under the mentorship of veteran journalists while earning academic credit.

These students will reshape how the world sees and understands the Middle East and, in turn, how the Middle East impacts our world. Your contribution will provide the next generation with the skills they need to uphold the highest standards of journalism and, in turn, educate our global society with integrity and respect.

Thank you!

Tensions with U.S. Pushing Turkey into Russia’s Arms (AUDIO INTERVIEW)

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says he is “committed” to a deal with Moscow to purchase Russian-made S-400 anti-aircraft missile defense systems, a move that has angered the United States and other NATO members.

“There is a certain step that we took; there is an agreement here and we are committed to it,” Erdogan told reporters Tuesday. “It is out of the question for us to take a step back,” he added.

The latest dispute between Washington and Ankara has raised already heightened tensions between the two allies, which are at odds over U.S. support for Kurdish fighters in Syria that Turkey considers terrorists. The Turkish government is also infuriated with the Trump Administration over its refusal to extradite exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen, who Erdogan blames for the failed 2016 coup.

The Media Line discussed these issues and more with Dr. Hay Eytan Cohen Yanarocak, a researcher at the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies at Tel Aviv University and an expert on contemporary Turkish politics and society.
