Media in Libya
Changes to the ownership of media outlets in the country have taken place over the month of August, with the former pro-Qadhafi TV stations Al-Jamahiriya, Al-Libiyah and JANA news agency being replaced by the Syria-based satellite channel, Al-Ra’y. The channel presents a mix of news, call-in programs, and commentary. Content is generally anti-NATO and anti-rebel. Anti-Qadhafi media has expanded its share of Libyan media from Qatar-based Libya TV, and Al-Yawm and Birniq newspapers and various social media avenues earlier in the conflict, in acquiring the Jamahiriya network in August.
