Arab Media Watch back online after hacker attack

Arab Media Watch is pleased to announce the launch of its new website, several months after a vicious hacking.

It provides our usual services such as media reviews, action alerts, analyses, news, press releases, an events calendar, TV and radio listings, media contacts, quote of the day, tips for media lobbying, forums, polls, a shop etc.

However it is bigger, better and more secure than the previous website, including more country backgrounds, a Palestine Body Count, and lists of AMW's media interactions and events, among other things.

It is also a work in progress, so expect more improvements and additions in the future. AMW owes its success to the efforts and interest of its members. To register, go to:

Members on our old site will have to re-register. It is free, easy, fast and confidential, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. To find out more about AMW, go to:

We continued our activities during the hacking period, including regular media interviews, letter-writing and articles. Our highlights included hosting Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa, and conducting a major study into the BBC's coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, at the invitation of the BBC as part of its impartiality review.

Our findings and recommendations closely mirrored those of an independent panel, the Communications Research Centre at Loughborough University, and Israeli international lawyer Noam Lubell - all officially commissioned by the BBC - as well as previous research by Professor Greg Philo of the Glasgow University Media Group. Comparative highlights of each report are at:
