Arab Satellite Television and Crisis Reporting: Covering the Fall of Baghdad
The question as to what dictates the choices of various media outlets and what guides the professional practices of journalists when reporting on international military crises is particularly pertinent when considering Arab media, who have been claiming a space in the global media scene by virtue of their intense and often controversial coverage of wars and crises in the postSeptember 11 era. This article is concerned with the coverage of the war against Iraq. It examines how Arab media reported the fall of Baghdad and the collapse of the regime of Saddam Hussein. The study focuses on how three pan-Arab satellite news channels that have been at the forefront of the coverage of the war against Iraq – Al Jazeera, Al Arabiya and Abu Dhabi Channel–handled the news from a narrative and visual perspective.
