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.

What is it about.

Noise can now be added to the list of major pollutants; says F. Michael Strumpf about noise pollution in Israel.

We live in a world where we are inundated with sounds throughout the day — some pleasant, some not so pleasant — but we very rarely experience silence. Does this matter? Actually, it does. The World Economic Forum has published a list of the worst cities for noise pollution based on over 200,000 hearing tests and here are some results on our health:

  • Silence has been found to stimulate brain growth.
  • Noise affects our stress levels by raising cortisol and adrenaline.
  • Silence is more “relaxing” for your body and brain than listening to music.
  • Periods of silence throughout the day enhance sleep and lessen insomnia.
  • Research throughout the 20th century has linked noise pollution to an increase in heart disease and tinnitus.
  • You will find yourself able to focus better.
  • Lowering sensory input helps us to restore our cognitive resources.
