MU on Aljazeera’s Listening Post – “Tunisia’s Multiplying Media”

UNESCO and various organizations marked World Press Freedom Day (May 3) 2012 in Tunisia, where the “Arab Spring” began and has led to uprisings in other Middle Eastern/North African countries.

Media Unlimited director Magda Abu-Fadil appeared in a segment of the Aljazeera English program Listening Post entitled “Tunisia’s multiplying media” to discuss journalists’, bloggers’ and activists’ fears that post-revolution media freedom is endangered by the tug-of-war between liberal secularists on the one hand, and the ruling Annahda Party and Islamist/Salafist hardliners on the other.
