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!

Turkish Broadcaster: Russian-made S-400s to Arrive Monday

Haberturk, a private Turkish broadcasting station, says the country will receive its first shipment of S-400 anti-aircraft missiles as early as Monday. The Russian-made S-400 is believed to be a highly advanced and effective aerial defense weapon, and its purchase by Ankara has aroused the anger of fellow NATO members because the system is incompatible with those used by the alliance. Turkey became a NATO member in 1952. The dissatisfaction has led the Trump Administration to threaten to withhold shipments to Turkey of the highly sophisticated F-35 stealth fighter jet – which some defense experts say could be used by Russian advisers based in Turkey to calibrate the S-400’s radar to enable it to detect aircraft of this type. According to the Haberturk report, which did not reveal its sources, Russian technicians will arrive with the first missiles to begin setting up the system. Washington has said the missile’s delivery would trigger sanctions on Ankara.
