"Your foreign correspondent in the Middle East"
Started: 14 August 2006

Owner: Ibrahim Al Amine  (Editor in Chief)
In its own words:
"On August 14 2006, Beirut-based Al-Akhbar was launched as a “calculated adventure” by prominent Lebanese journalist Joseph Samaha and a team of like-minded colleagues. The late Samaha (1949-2007) envisioned a publication that would uphold the highest standards of journalistic integrity while remaining true to the principles of anti-imperialist struggle, progressive politics, and freedom of expression.

Five years later, Al-Akhbar embarks on another calculated adventure amid a period of historic significance in the region - the year of the Arab uprisings. By providing much-needed in-depth reporting on the uprisings and other news in the region, Al-Akhbar English will reflect the diverse and dynamic realities that make up the communities undergoing these transformations. The English edition also aims to make debates and analyses circulating in the Arabic media sphere accessible to English speakers worldwide. Al-Akhbar depends on young and creative writers that challenge conventional forms of reporting and aspires to speak truth to power. Al-Akhbar English intends to preserve this tradition by translating selected articles from the Arabic edition for an international readership.

The site also features original content of opinion, analysis, and field stories as well as photo blogs chronicling the latest developments across the Middle East."
