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.
