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!

White House Defends Not Slapping Sanctions on Saudi Prince 

United States Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Monday said Washington reserves the right to sanction Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman for the grisly 2018 murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, but acknowledged the White House is “focused on future conduct” and is looking only to “recalibrate” relations with Riyadh, not “rupture” them. State Department spokesman Ned Price noted the US is “trying to get to the systemic issues underlying the brutal murder,” and urged Saudi Arabia to take “additional steps” in its recent human rights makeover, including lifting travel bans on activists released from prison and commuting others’ sentences. On Friday, President Joe Biden released a declassified intelligence report claiming the de-facto Saudi ruler, nicknamed MBS, approved the killing of the Washington Post journalist for criticizing the Gulf kingdom, and sanctioned some 76 Saudi officials. The exemption of the crown prince from punishment was panned on Monday by the United Nations special investigator into the Khashoggi case, who called the US decision “extremely problematic and dangerous.” MBS has denied any involvement in the matter, while eight Saudis convicted of the murder have been jailed, their death sentence commuted by a Riyadh court last year.
