Riachi announces integrated solution plan for media predicament

NNA – Information Minister, Melhem Riachi, deemed media as “the mirror of society” which should be based on content rather than solely form, pointing out that media in Lebanon nowadays endures a huge conflict due to the deficiency of funding.

“Media in Lebanon undergoes a huge crisis of values,” Minister Riachi said during the first episode of “Seyasat” TV Program run on “Tele Lumiere” and “Noursat”.
