Review: "Since 9/11 and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, many television viewers in the United States have become familiar with Al Jazeera as an alternative take on events from that presented by mainstream U.S. media, as well as a disseminator of anti-American invectiveSummary: Westerners have tended toward simplistic views of Arab newspapers, radio, and television, assuming that they are all under government control and that freedom of press is non-existent. William A. Rugh, a long time observer of the Arab mass media, offers a more nuanced picture of the Arab press as it relates to the political situation in the Arab world today."--Jacket
