Reporting the Middle East : The Practice of News in the Twenty-First Century (Hardcover) (Zahera Harb)
About this item
How do the media cover the Middle East? Through a detailed country-by-country approach, this book provides detailed analysis of the complexities of reporting from the Arab World. Each chapter provides an overview of the country in question, including the political context, relationship to international politics and the key features that are most frequently covered in Western media. The authors explore how the media can be used to serve particular political agendas on both a regional and international level. They also consider the changes to the media landscape following the growth of digital and social media, showing how access to the media is no longer restricted to state or elite actors. By studying coverage of the Middle East from a whole range of news providers, this book shows how news formats and practices may be defined and shaped differently by different nations. It will be essential reading for scholars and practitioners of journalism, especially those focussing on the Arab World.
