The Media Line led over twenty years ago in pioneering the American independent news agency in the Middle East, arguably the first in the region. We have always stayed true to our mission: to provide you with contextual sourced and trustworthy news. In an age of fake news masquerading as journalism, The Media Line plays a crucial role in providing fact-based news that deserves your support.

We're proud of the dozens of young students we've trained in our Press and Policy Student Program who will form the vanguard of the next generation of journalists to the benefit of countless millions of news readers.

Look out for exciting new additions as we enter 2022.

We thank our loyal readers and wish you all the happiest of holidays.

A New Year

A New Year

At sundown on Monday, the Jewish world will usher in its new year with the holiday of Rosh Hashanah. Mention of the festival evokes a reflexive response of repentance and taking responsibility for one’s sins as the process of judgment that ends with the Day of Atonement begins. For a second topsy-turvy year, the COVID-19 pandemic has chilled the holiday’s warm spirit and impeded family traditions. But people are fighting back. If it means hearing the shofar blown in the street rather than in a synagogue or standing in long lines to be tested in order to share holiday meals with the extended family, so be it.

The Media Line has worked diligently to stay the course and continue, uninterrupted, to provide complete, honest and reliable reporting from the Middle East. And it has not been easy. From the Abraham Accords a year ago through the tumultuous and chaotic “end” to the Afghanistan war, reporting with the numerous handicaps placed upon us by the COVID-19 pandemic have made our task monumental. We’re up to that task but we need your help.
