The Libyan government’s nationalization of private media outlets owned by Muammar Qaddafi’s reform-minded son Seif al-Islam may signal a slowing of Libyan reform efforts. The nationalized newspaper, radio and television channels had openly reported on governmental corruption. They will now be under the control of the National Media Services Centre, overseen by Ramadan Briki, a known opponent of Seif al-Islam’s reforms and advocacy for independent media.
