Al Liwaa is apparently shutting down soon, Assafir is not doing so well and is considering all its options. There are also rumors that Annahar must stop print and move online.

Assafir has been there since 1974 while Al Liwa2’s first publication dates back to 1963. Annahar is one of Lebanon’s oldest papers and was launched on 4 August 1933.

I don’t remember the last time I actually bought a newspaper. Print media is doomed and it’s time to move online. The real problem for me though is the current transition to online that’s proving to be disastrous, especially when most of the Lebanese media are relying on click baits, gossip and sex stories to attract more readers.
