The era of state-controlled media is coming to an end as privately-owned channels emerge. This book presents a comprehensive analysis of the broadcasting similarities and differences between Al-Jazeera, Al-Arabiya and Al-Hurra. It is distinct in its focus on both the discursive practices of these channels and the sociological aspects that contribute to their formation.
