Arab News Channels

Beirut-based Al-Mayadeen Satellite Channel is acquiring high rank of Arab viewers, according to my personal impression. The mentioned TV channel is transmitting 24-hours updated News on the Arab World. Apparently, there is 'media war' alongside military war in Syria between moderate Arab regimes versus Iranian-Syrian axis.

One can see an increasing growth of Al-Mayadeen TV channel in Palestine by naked eye in supermarkets, groceries..etc.. Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiya TV channels (GCC-funded) are clearly dropped down from top News channels due to two reasons:
1- Loss of neutrality, objectivity and credibility.
2- Ignoring the Palestinian cause as a pan-Arab question, moreover, Palestinian question is representing a cornerstone of Arab and Muslim 'patriotism'.

Al-Mayadeen TV Channel is being accused of being Iranian-funded by GCC propagandists, but there is no certain evidence. However, the mentioned channel is apparently shifted toward the Syrian regime regarding to Syrian crisis. Meanwhile, Al-Mayadeen channel has strict editorial line regarding to avoid bigotry.

Media War will persist as long as a parallel war of influence is running in the region, however, there is no 'charitable' News channels, i.e, there will be a news channel's sponsor, and so the question is: Which channel is representing people's affairs, opinions and hopes?... these criteria are simply the success formula.
