Rainbow Media Co. S.A.L.

Rainbow Media Co. owns Almodon electronic newspaper, an independent newspaper situating itself as representative of civil society in Lebanon. It is part of a wider network of outlets via the ownership of Fadaat Media, a company owned by Qatari partners. Fadaat Media directly manages websites and TV companies in the region such as Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, Al Araby Television, Syria Television, and The New Arab, demonstrating the extent of Qatari investment, reach, and leverage over the sector. Further research is pending to unpack ownership details behind Fadaat Media, particularly in relationship to specific individual Qatari state officials.
