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.

About this event


: This is a 60-minute class running on Wednesday, 12/1/2021 @ 12pm-1pm PST. Upon completed registration, your Zoom invitation will be emailed to you 7 days prior to the start time.

From unscripted bingeworthy shows to nuanced dramas, Jewish writers and content creators are reclaiming and reshaping Jewish identity on-screen, and audiences are reacting to the increased Jewish representation with enthusiasm and worry, alternating between celebration and condemnation. What do we expect from on-screen Jewish representations of secular and religious Jews and their identities? Why is this happening now? How are creators hitting or missing the mark?

Join award-winning writer Esther D. Kustanowitz for an overview of the issues, the controversial portrayals and why this increase is “good for the Jews” and the world. Plus, celebrate a very TVGoneJewy Hanukkah with special content focusing on the Festival of Lights!
