Ministers of Information taking part in the Arab Media Forum called Sunday for raising ceiling of freedom because “we have nothing to hide.”
Oman’s Abdulmunem AlHosni said any human being could become a journalist, and called for assessing the events before making them public. He said an elementary school student could “distort the fact because of the vast space of media.”
Palestinian Deputy Prime Minister and Information Minister Nabil Abu Rudaina said the Arab media have a great role to play to confront “a conspiracy against Palestine.
“The battle now is to defend the Palestinian and Arab identity, as well as religious sites,” he said. Bahrain’s Information Minister Ali AlRumaihi said “we have nothing to hide and are ready to answer any question in full transparency.” He said the Arab media lacked scientific analysis and studies “which elighten us about what we suffer from.”
