It could have gone either way. You could imagine that the other chatter and information on Facebook was crowding out news consumption.”
To make it happen, the Aspen Institute, the Carnegie Corporation and the Koch Foundation or other similar institutions could join hands and open wallets. It has been more than 50 years since the Public Broadcasting Act. The world has changed — so should public media. On Tuesday, Praful Patel, a vice president of the Asian Football Confederation, issued a statement asking Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha of Thailand to ensure Mr. Araibi’s return to his adopted home.
