"Al-Hurra did not succeed in delivering the administration's point of view in spite of its relative popularity in Iraq". Dar Al-Hayat, 1 October 2006. Ereli also says, "the Palestinians have never missed an opportunity to miss an opportunity." Xinhua, 29 September 2006. "'It's great that we have set up Arab language TV stations like Alhura and radio stations like Alsawa [sic], helping and supporting Arab language newspapers, but (that is not) reaching the demographic that we need to be reaching,' (analyst Bruce Hoffman) said, pointing out that in Arabic countries, as elsewhere, young people were getting news from the Internet rather than radio, TV or newspapers."
