半岛电视台十周年

当半岛电视台刚刚面世的时候,这一来自卡塔尔的全新卫星频道名副其实。阿拉伯语中的“半岛”代表的是在政府控制的单方面阿拉伯媒体海洋中专业以及独立的时事节目的避风港。在半岛电视台大多数受过英国广播公司训练的记者涌现之前,普通阿拉伯人的新闻电视节目不过只是礼宾新闻,反映巴勒斯坦冲突最新消息、地震或者野火生动照片的有线电视录像。

半岛电视台不仅提供了现场采访以及直播,而且还向阿拉伯世界引进了现场辩论。它的名叫”反方向“的节目带来了世界大多数地方习以为常、而阿拉伯人从来没有在电视上见过的唇枪舌战。卡萨姆带到多哈录像棚(或者通过卫星) 的人包括来自同一个阿拉伯国家或者地区、但是代表了截然相反观点的人士。

尽管像”反方向“那样咄咄逼人的专业新闻和节目给观众提供了独特的电视节目,但是,还是巨大的世界冲突才给半岛电视台带来了声誉。巴勒斯坦起义、2001年9月发生在纽约和华盛顿的恐怖主义袭击以及入侵阿富汗和伊拉克让半岛电视台举世闻名。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
