> Traditional media have maintained a stronghold on news consumption in many
> countries in the world, but the internet is increasingly entering the
> battle for audiences. In the Arab world, it remains the only space for
> critical voices and is driving civil society activism. These were some of
> the conclusions of a panel of Mapping Digital Media researchers on 31
> October 2011 at the conference "Digital and Media Literacy: New Directions"
> organized by the Arab-US Association of Communication Educators (AUSACE) at
> the American University in Beirut. The event took place between 28 October
> and 31 October 2011. (Media Policy, 10/31)
