No quite interesting actually. But would it be smart to publicly finance the media? That way it could risk to be state-controlled as regards its content... So I think the amount of money allocated from public finances should be very carefully watched and weighted. After all, it is a power independent from the state and often opposed to the state, as a critical observer. If financially supported too much by the state, it could risk losing its objectivity.

That is just my point of view? Too obvious?

A theme I see developing is the relative weakness of funding for the fourth estate, especially compared with that going to the first, second and third estates - parliament, government and the judiciary.

Too boring?

Who Praised the Killing of an Innocent Baby in Jerusalem? The Palestinian Authority did it!

The Palestinian authority's advisor to President Mahmoud Abbas praised it and the Palestinian authority official website confirmed it as one can see from the video they uploaded on their page (see picture here below), with the title in Arabic saying, Jerusalem martyr Abdul Rhaman available here on the page of the Ministry of Information from the State of Palestine and…See More
