December 26, in AlgeriaPress Tags: ElWatan, a francophone newspaper, picked up on the story and claimed that they verified it by a second anonymous source. The day after, Echorouk reacted furiously. They published a multi page rebuttal with scans of letters from the printing companies. The state owned printing companies themselves denied the rumours in official letters. In another twist, Echorouk is filing a lawsuit against ElWatan in a fight that might bring down one of the two newspapers most likely ElWatan for a few months.
Recall that Echorouk shot to national success by sensualising the recent Algeria-Egypt football rivalry.
Its editorial line has been very populist since three years ago. It claims to be printing over 1 million copies a day 1. The production price of a copy is higher than its selling price, so the newspaper supposedly relies on advertising to turn a profit.
Well, it appears that the newspaper might have been amassing debts all the way through the football saga. El Mouhtarem draws a lot of legitimacy from the claim that he is in the journalism profession working for a state newspaper.
By night he diffuses what he hears throughout the day on his collective blog. His posts include all kinds of mysterious insights into Algerian onliine and press. His blog has been gaining popularity and onlibe sadly be one of the first victims of a proposed internet filtering system. Echorouk has been largely aligned with the government. A few years ago the newspaper Le Matin was harassed and forced to close using debts in this way.
The end of this storm will be fun to watch. It is quite humorous how such a large newspaper comes down on the defensive by the mighty stroke of an individual blogger! December archivws, in AlgeriaPress Zrchives The re-entrance of an iconic figure from the Algerian revolution into Algerian politics has always sent shock waves through the whole society. The latest entrant is Djamila Bouhiredone of the most recognised faces of the revolution worldwide.
The manner in which she shot back onlins the political arena commands further analysis than the typical response that has been written, and is still being written in various Algerian and Arab outlets. Very few living people in Algeria still command the same respect as Djamila Bouhired as a revolution figure. The first group took control of the country in a single party rule and dived in its wealth, sharing it with those who turned out to be opportunists.
The second group voiced their discontent about the direction that the new state was taking, and were all forced w exile or were mysteriously assassinated. The third group chose to keep quiet, living on the sidelines, content with being remembered every year on the national day and being given a token state recognition every now and then.
Ik has been one of these until two weeks ago, when she chose to step back into the field, and what a step it was. The first is chori pro-state and the second is firmly in the opposition camp. The letters voices her personal hardship and her discontent with the way she has been mistreated along with war veterans. The letters were addressed in his name. Like most veterans, Djamila is drawn a remuneration that is modest to good by Algerian standards.

Djamila was given an apartment in ElMouradia, one of the wealthiest neighbourhoods in the country and archivee site for the Presidential palace itself.
She has been assigned a maid to help her in the apartment. The remuneration money would not be able to cover for the typical private health costs of her age, so her claim is legitimate. Djamila could have contacted one of the many veterans organisations in the country, and they would have scrambled to help her. But archkves Ministry of Mudjahideen veterans and the Organisation of Martyrs both claimed that Djamila never contacted them directly about her hardship.
Djamila must know the status that she holds with Algerians and Arabs all over the world. She has always been a symbol of feminine activity in largely men dominated Arab societies. Her letters caused an outcry in Algerian onlune to the huge embarrassment of the state. The blow was with such force that the government could not even issue a statement or apologise, onlije there are reports of efforts to appease her with better Villas and a potential position in the cabinet or one of the veteran organisations.
Her move signals that she is foremost deeply unhappy with Bouteflika, who, just a few months ago, held her hands as he paraded her to an audience of foreign personalities and diplomats during the yearly independence celebrations. The feud could be personal: Bouteflika enjoyed the legacy of the revolution to the fullest: It has for long been known that there is a great power struggle between Bouteflika and some Army sections that are unhappy with the way he has been stripping them from power.
Veterans of the revolution enjoy quite a range of benefits that are a point of envy, greed and controversy for Algerians. In addition to the remuneration, veterans can import certain goods without tax and often get priority when houses and apartments are allocated by the state.
Algeria is often quipped to be the only country whose number of veterans increases over time. In there was a great debacle at the claim that up to registered veterans are not only false veterans, but were actively fighting against the revolution.
The veteran system has become to be seen as a vehicle with which power hungry officials claim credence.
December 10, in AlgeriaDemocracyPress Tags: The minaret ban in Switzerland continues to draw much ink and cynic reactions in the Arab world. They cite multiple issues and come to the conflusion that the West is not different from the Arab world after all — only more intelligent, in its anti human rights campaigns.
Pieces like this suggest that the western human rights demands are just post colonial meddling in internal affairs. The first piece is written by Fayssal Alqassemone of the most popular journalists in the Arab world. His syndicated column is printed in almost every Arab country.
The latest minaret ban is just the west accidently getting into the dumb anti human rights ways. Some selected quotes paraphrasing:. The chork brother that George Orwell warned us from is watching everywhere.
Rarely can you walk through a street in Europe without noticing dozens of cameras watching even the ants. In London alone there are more than 4 million cameras….
Uncle Sam does not only want to monitor his citizens alone, he wants to monitor the whole world. The second piece is written by Fawzi Oussedek, a local Algerian journalist. He contrasts the perceived reaction of the West, governments, institutes and individuals alike towards the Minaret ban with their reactions to any similar measure in the Arab and Muslim Worlds.
There are a lot more Muslims in the West than say, Christians in Muslim countries so the difference in reactions seems even more absurd to him. On Western reactions he says:. Since the Minaret ban I have been waiting the views of human rights organisations […] that made a habit of criticising some places for their human rights record […] since the ban I have been listening to commentators in the west trying to justify the unjustifiable […] Governmental reactions amounted to only expressing mere dismay, a tactic that they used to diplomatically evade their moral stance on human rights.
I wonder, what if such a vote was made in a Muslim country to ban some other religious symbol, what would be the reaction? The author then suggests that the muslim community try and fight this ban all the way in Swiss and European courts.
December 3, in AlgeriaPress Tags: The mass market reach of the Algerian daily newspapers was reviewed recently at the Maghreb Politics Review. I believe the main reason the dailies have had more popular success in Algeria than elsewhere in the Arab world is that they treat themselves much more like capitalist endeavourers than cultural entities.
In neighbouring countries like Egypt, Morocco and the Gulf the readership is mostly confined to the cultural elite. The topics are carefully selected to give the reader a sense of intellectual superiority over the masses. Most Algerian Arab newspapers, like EchouroukElkhabar and Ennaharturned the tables on this concept, and chose instead to embrace the lowest common denominator in search for ever increasing circulation numbers except perhaps, the government owned newspapers, which have negligible circulation in comparison.
This has, obviously, the unfortunate effect of being turned towards more populism and sensationalism a. Most newspapers achieve profitably with advertising — so circulation numbers are very important.
The advertising management market is dominated by the state owned Entreprise National de Publicite ANEPwhich collects advertising money from clients and distributes the adverts to the newspapers.
This forces the newspapers to tread on careful lines or else the source of money is dried. Perhaps, Elkhabar still tries to maintain a sense of intellectuality — opting instead to sometimes publish some well written reports on the state of the Algerian economy and political landscape.

Its reluctance to populism is probably what made it lose its top spot as the best selling newspaper — just years ago it was dwarfing Echorouk, which was at the time, incredibly, seen as the newspaper for the intellectuals: In additions to attempts to create a private printing onlije, they have established a country wide distribution network — KD-Pressand they are looking to seriously challenge the dominance of ANEP with their new venture: Elkhabar Pubby creating a privately owned advertising management company.
Most of the big spenders in advertising are private enterprises now. The private mobile networks DjezzyNedjma and Mobilis this last soon to be privatised compete fiercely by buying an incredible amount of newspaper ad space. There is also the decades old fear arq the outside: Speculation about the owners of the papers runs rampant — from business tycoons to army generals.
Qrchives lack of space on other media, such as radio and television, has certainly not hurt the newspapers either. However, pressure is mounting on the government to open up the audio visual space, with Echorouk positioning themselves well to create a new television station should the chance come by running an aar only channel on Obline.
Should this space be opened, there is no reason not to believe that it will be as vibrant as the newspaper space, given that other chroo, such as the MBC and ART are eager to more affectively enter the Algerian market.
