Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

The Media and Palestine

We are joined today by Palestinian-American journalist Daoud Kuttab. He heads the Institute for Modern Media at Al-Quds University based in Ramallah. He’s been active around many issues in Israel and the occupied West Bank, and has reported extensively for the Pacifica Network News. Democracy Now! listeners may remember Daoud Kuttab from several months ago when an international campaign was launched on his behalf after he was arrested by the Palestinian Authority. He was kept in detention for seven days because he was broadcasting the proceedings of the Palestinian legislature which were then sharply critical of Palestine Authority President Yasir Arafat.

Why don’t we start with the situation today and you’re assessment of what is happening?

Tape:

  • Daoud Kuttab, the director of the Institute of Modern Media at Al-Quds University and formerly a correspondent for Pacifica Radio.
