Jordan's Brotherhood vies for TV influence

Low-budget Al Yarmouk manages to build significant viewership for Muslim Brotherhood's first TV channel.

    Since the Arab Spring, Jordan has loosened its tight control of the media.

    That has allowed the opposition Muslim Brotherhood to establish its first television channel, which describes itself as conservative but not religious.

    For decades, the group has been one of the most resilient voices across the region. Some say its message, however, is often one-sided.
