Defend Press Freedom

In honor of World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd, we hope you will consider supporting The Media Line this month.
The role of a free press has been at the foundation of democracies around the world for nearly 200 years.
Yet, in many countries, publications are censored and journalists put their lives at risk to report the truth.
A transparent and reliable press covering the important issues of the Middle East is needed more than ever.

The Media Line is proud to assume this responsibility and has over 20 years of success in shaping the role of news reporting in the region. We hope you will support our efforts by making a donation today.

Thank you!

Thank you for confidence in The Media Line.

Facebook’s Sandberg Inaugurates Startup Incubator in Tel Aviv

Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer, Sheryl Sandberg, has inaugurated the social media giant’s new business incubator in Tel Aviv. Called Playground, the venture is dedicated to boosting the local startup ecosystem by offering an open, interactive space to companies, developers and artists. Another aim of the project is to bridge social gaps by making technology accessible to disadvantaged populations. “Our goal is to use this physical space and the work we do online to bring together entrepreneurs, big businesses, small businesses, nonprofits, NGOs and communities,” Sandberg said at Wednesday’s launch event. Sandberg oversees Facebook’s financial dealings, including the ads that generate most of the company’s income. She has helped grow Facebook from 100 million users when she joined the tech company to some 2.7 billion today. In 2018, Facebook declared revenues of almost $56 billion. Nevertheless, Sandberg and founder Mark Zuckerberg have come under intense fire over the past two years for scandals involving fake news, election interference, hate speech and privacy-related data issues.
