CounterPoint Online Arab American TV Show launched

Columnists Launching Online Show on Mideast Issues By E&P Staff Published: June 05, 2006 2:25 PM ET

NEW YORK Columnists Ray Hanania and Ali Alarabi are co-hosting an online TV program called "CounterPoint" that officially launches tomorrow. The 30 Minute Show discusses and debates Middle East-related issues. Among the topics will be Israeli-Palestinian relations, Hamas, the Haditha massacre, the influence of America's Israel lobby, and U.S. media coverage of the Middle East.

"CounterPoint" will "help Americans hear another side of the Middle East story," said Hanania, who noted that the mainstream media doesn't have enough Arab-American voices -- especially on Op-Ed pages.

Hanania, whose self-syndicated column was formerly distributed by Creators Syndicate, already does a cable TV show on Arab-American issues that's also available online.
