Media development organization Internews has released a new report on the state of Libyan Media. Authored by Jamal Dajani and Jacobo Quintanilla, the report explores the recent history of media in Libya, speculates on the future, and provides a comprehensive "Media Map" of all the news outlets, independent or otherwise, operating in Libya today.

The report even contains a section on Small World News' project Alive in Libya:
