Cyber Uprising: Al-Jazeera TV Channel and the Egyptian Uprising
Rinnawi, Khalil
Language and Intercultural Communication, v12 n2 p118-132 2012
This study will address the role of Arab transnational media in the Egyptian uprising. The main argument is that the emergence of the Arab satellite media in the region, such as al-Jazeera TV Channel and the Internet, has had a significant impact on the political and socio-cultural transformation in different Arab countries. It examines how the Arab media reported the fall of Hosni Mubarak's regime in Egypt early 2011. The study focuses on how the pan-Arab satellite news channel al-Jazeera handled the news from narrative and visual perspectives. We shall argue that al-Jazeera, among others, has played a crucial role in the process of transformation, both during the uprising itself and beyond it.
