Jordan: Western Style Tabloid Launched

"We are the first tabloid-size daily similar to those published abroad," said Awni Da'ud, chief editor of the new Jordanian tabloid Al-Anbat.

The independent political compact will employ a staff of 100 including journalists with varying political views and claims to combine the "credibility of dailies with the boldness of the weeklies." The staff hopes that its financial and editorial independence will allow the paper to take more daring political positions in a country already known for a sarcastic and critical press. Al-Anbat will be the sixth Arab-language daily in the country.
