Oman: The Media
Country Study > Chapter 5 > Government and Politics > The Media

THE MEDIA


The media sector remained rudimentary in 1993. There are three Arabic language dailies: Al Watan (The Nation), Khalij Times, and Oman Daily Newspaper. The Muscat daily, Times of Oman, and the Oman Daily Observer are two English-language newspapers. Rather than a forum for open discourse, the media serve primarily as benign commentators on local and international news.

Editor's Note: Country Studies included here were published between 1988 and 1998. The Country study for Oman was first published in 1993. Where available, the data has been updated through 2008. The date at the bottom of each section will indicate the time period of the data. Information on some countries may no longer be up to date. See the "Research Completed" date at the beginning of each study on the Title Page or the "Data as of" date at the end of each section of text. This information is included due to its comprehensiveness and for historical purposes.
