Summary A chronicle which provides a rare window into the international perception of the Iraq War, courtesy of Al Jazeera, the Arab world's most popular news outlet. Criticized by Cabinet members and Pentagon officials for reporting with a pro-Iraqi bias, and strongly condemned for frequently airing civilian casualties as well as footage of American POWs, the station has revealed (and continues to show the world) everything about the Iraq War that the Bush administration does not want the public to see.
Explores the ancient and complex relationship between the Western and Arab worlds. Reveals how satellite television has changed the way wars are reported: from news providers, driven by the patriotism of their audiences, to military information officers, driven by military objectives.
