Journalist: Take Over Western Media "Discreetly"

by Mike Fegelman

ArabnewsAn article in Saudi Arabia’s Arab News adds an interesting footnote to the proposal for Muslim businessmen to buy into Western media outlets to change attitudes:

"A Western journalist based in Riyadh and who has been covering the region for international news agencies for 10 years said the idea of buying stakes in Western media outlets was valid, ‘but then it shouldn?t have been announced publicly. It will only alarm the other side and create unnecessary friction. It should have been done rather discreetly.’ He felt the Western media outlets would be on guard against any hostile takeover bids originating from this idea of creating a Muslim voice in the mainstream Western media."
