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!

Jordan’s King Abdullah Says Attempted Coup is Over

Jordan’s King Abdullah II said in a statement that the “sedition” against him, an alleged plot involving his half-brother Prince Hamzah, has been “nipped in the bud.” He also acknowledged in the statement read on state television on Wednesday evening that the plot was more painful since it involved his own family.

“Nothing comes close to what I felt – shock, pain and anger – as a brother and guardian of the Hashemite family and a leader of this dear people,” the statement said.

He indirectly addressed reports that Hamzah is under house arrest, saying: “Hamzah today is with his family in his palace under my care.”

The king said that an investigation into the alleged coup attempt is under investigation. Some 14-16 people have been arrested in connection with the failed uprising, according to reports. Jordan has placed a gag order on any reports dealing with the investigation.

US President Joe Biden expressed the United States’ strong support for Jordan and the leadership of King Abdullah in a call with the king on Wednesday, the White House said in a statement. Biden said that he told Abdullah to “stay strong.”
