Al-Jazeera : the story of the network that is rattling governments and redefining modern journalism by Mohammed El-Nawawy( )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 1,853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Al-Jazeera, the independent, all-Arab television news network based in Qatar, emerged as ambassador to the Arab world in the events following September 11, 2001. Arabic for "the island," Al-Jazeera has "scooped" the western media conglomerates many times. With its exclusive access to Osama Bin Laden and members of the Taliban, its reputation was burnished quickly through its exposure on CNN. During the 2003 war in Iraq, Al-Jazeera seemed to be everywhere, reporting dramatic stories and images, even as it strived to maintain its independence as an international free press news network. Al-Jazeera sheds light on the background of the network: how it operates, the programs it broadcasts, its effects on Arab viewers, the reactions of the West and Arab states, the implications for the future of news broadcasting in the Middle East, and its struggle for a free press and public opinion in the Arab world. -- Back cover

Al-Jazeera : how the free Arab news network scooped the world and changed the Middle East by Mohammed El-Nawawy( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Al-Jazeera, the independent all-Arab television news network based in Qatar, has emerged as ambassador for the Arab world in the events following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States and the war waged in Afghanistan. More than a channel reporting the news as it happens, Al-Jazeera (Arabic for "the island") has access to the Arab world and is "scooping" the western media conglomerates. It has emerged as an international relations actor on the world stage with its exclusive access to Osama bin Laden and members of the Taliban. Its reputation has been burnishing quickly through its daily exposure on CNN in the U.S., even as it strives to maintain its independence as an international free news network." "Al-Jazeera sheds light on the background of the Al-Jazeera network, how it started, how it operates, the kinds of programs it broadcasts, its effects on Arab viewers, the reactions of the West and Arab states, its implications for the future of news broadcasting in the Middle East, and its struggle for a free press and public opinion in the Arab world."--Jacket

Media evolution on the eve of the Arab Spring by Leila Hudson( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leading scholars of Arab media come together to offer unparalleled insight into the communication environment that preceded the political and societal ruptures that shook the Arab world 2010-2011. Examining the role of competing publics, the state's ability to construct meaning, and social and political change in the region, they unsettle oversimplifications of much of the existing literature and examine numerous precipitating conditions, including, political stagnation, civil engagement, new media, rural and urban divides, Islamist blogospheres, video games, Turkish and Syrian dramas, mediated diplomacy, and diaspora"--
Mediating the Arab uprisings by Bassam Haddad( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From "Facebook revolutions" to "Al-Jazeera uprisings," the outburst of popular activism across the Arab world has either been attributed to the media, drawn up by the media, observed through the media, or decontextualized by the media. Bloggers become icons, self-proclaimed experts becoming interpreters of unfolding events, stereotypes are cultivated, and autocratic regimes continue to subdue freedom of the press. The uprisings have become the most compelling media stories in recent memory. With so much at stake, the burden of relaying human narratives accurately and responsibly is a burden on all journalistic establishments worldwide. In a unique collection of essays that covers the expanse of the Arab popular protest movements, Mediating the Arab Uprisings leaves no stone unturned by offering spirited contributions that elucidate the remarkable variation and context behind the fourth estate's engagement with these mass protests. So while the public debate about the coverage of the Arab uprisings remain effervescent and polarizing, the essays in this volume go beyond the cursory discussion to historicize media practice, unsettle pre-existing suppositions about the uprisings, puncture the pomposity of self-righteous expertise on the region, and shatter the naiveté that underlies the reporting of the uprisings. The volume includes essays on the tribulations of covering Syria, the contextualization and demythologizing of Facebook activism, the New York Times' reporting rituals on Palestine, the tumult of Egypt's media post-Mubarak, the ominous omnipresence of perennial media darling Fouad Ajami, the faltering of Al-Jazeera Arabic in the wake of the uprisings, the gendered sexuality of reporting Egypt, and journalism's damning failure on Iraq. The first volume of its kind on this pressing topic, Mediating the Arab Uprisings is a primer for the curious reader, a pedagogical tool for media studies and communication, and a provocative collection for the seasoned scholar. This initiative was supported by the Middle East Studies Program at George Mason University
