Four days ago Mr Nebil Jeridet the founding director of 'Al Ula' newspaper started wild hunger strike to denounce: the spread of corruption and favoritism between news papers in the allocation of state advertising, the distribution of advertising-based on political policy and partisan orientation or worst for the benefit of newspapers claiming to be independent newspapers but that have a partisan editorial line without any legal support or statistical data;the disappearance of serious newspapers published after the revolution due to their deprivation of public advertising and obstacles imposed on them on the one hand, by economic forces that monopolize the channels of distribution of newspapers, and on the other hand by political forces that interfere in the distribution of government advertising and the continual silence towards the newspaper of defamation and the tabloid press, as well as their support by granting them public advertisement..
