U.S. Fanzine for Young Arabs

The latest plan from U.S. State Department propagandist Charlotte Beers is a "consumer lifestyle" magazine to be published in Arabic. The magazine "will avoid politics and instead focus on topics of common interest to American and Arab cultures, including education, careers, family, technology, music and health. ... The magazine, according to a State Department official, is meant to foster dialogue with young Arabs and dispel some of the 'misperceptions' they may have about the United States. Other Beers efforts "have included television and print advertisements, a new Arabic language television network, and Radio Sawa, an Arabic-language pop music station that includes newscasts with an American perspective."
