Wednesday, July 14, 2010
Two recent stories exemplify the way in which mass media is moving in to unlikely territory. Keach Hagey, media blogger at Politico and former reporter at The National, an english-language paper based in Abu Dahbi, discusses what we do and don't know about reports that Saudi Prince Alwaleed is teaming with Fox to start a mideast news channel. And Christina Larson, editor at Foreign Policy and fellow at the New America Foundation dicusses Xinhua, one of China's main state-run media outlets, and their efforts to expand in the US and around the world.
