I. B. Tauris, Oct 31, 2006 - Performing Arts - 728 pages
The rise of Arab satellite stations, Arabic websites and transnational Arabic newspapers and magazines means that Arab media are reaching larger audience and readership than ever before. The Arab media play a prominent role in covering global events, with the world's eyes on news channels such as Al Jazeera, the first to bring us breaking news.
Examining the Arab media's influence in shaping Arab public opinion and the western perspectives of the Arab world, 'Arab Media in the Information Age' addresses the important questions facing observers today: what is the relationship between media independence and credibility? To what extent do commercial interests and political influence affect Arab media? What is the impact of technology on Arab media? And most importantly what is the direction for the future? With comment and analysis from leading Arab and international academics such as Naomi Sakr and media professionals such as Greg Dyke, 'Arab Media in the Information Age' is crucial to understanding the current realities for Arab media and assessing directions for the future.
