Cultural Chaos will be essential reading for all those interested in the emerging globalised news culture of the twenty-first century. Skip to content. Perusall turns often-skipped solitary reading assignments into engaging collective activities students don't want to miss. Students collectively annotate each reading — asking questions, responding to each other's questions, or sharing other perspectives or knowledge.
Perusall's novel data analytics automatically grade these annotations to ensure that students complete the reading, and as an instructor, you get a classroom of fully prepared students every time. The change stems first from the inability of regimes to control the transnational services offered, at least on the receiving end. The fact that editorial choices are made on the basis of decisions by states or political parties , and not independently, is often discussed by the contributors most directly by Victoria Fontan and Noureddine Miladi.
Victoria Fontan argues that the editorial policy of the Al-Manar channel — which, with certain recent changes, has become at least superficially comparable to that of Western audiovisual media services — is the fruit of a process that echoes the political choices of the Lebanese Hezbollah party in a specific political context. And this means that even when a media institution comes close to Western standards, it can still be instrumentalised by a local political agency that may or may not be open to Western influence.
However, this does not mean that changes in the media have been homogeneous. While a service like Al-Jazeera seems open to different opinions, this is not the case for all broadcasting services, since, as we have just seen, such openness can cater for the political needs of a group in power. As Naomi Sakr suggests, changes to a regulatory regime can be more ambiguous than initially thought. Although Al-Jazeera has broadcast video tapes obtained from Al Qaeda, it decided not to broadcast an interview with Osama bin Laden from its own correspondent in Kabul, Tayssir Alouni, on the grounds that the content was overly propagandist and had no real news value CBS, Since then, Al-Jazeera has never broadcast terrorist representatives live without a commentary or other editorial accompaniment, to avoid being accused of promoting terrorist propaganda directed at Arabic populations Eedle 3 , But the question of Arabic public opinion and its relationships with the development of Arabic media can be considered from several angles.
Kamel Hamidou compares trends among French populations with a migrant background with the influence of Arabic satellite channels, while Noureddine Miladi considers that — as we have already underlined — the indirect impact of Al-Jazeera has been to increase the pressure of demands for freedom of expression in the Arab world, a pressure that seems to stem from the open discussions where the voicing of different opinions has become a hallmark of the Al-Jazeera service.
According to the latter, communication structures in the Islamic world are linked as much to the cultural values of Islam as to its religious and political structures, even if current developments in the Arab world are tending to blur these relationships and introduce ambiguities. On the other hand, to those analysing representations of the Arabic and Islamic worlds in the European media, Islam is more an alibi, or an explanatory detour — at least asserted as such - but ultimately has no explanatory value, whether the frame of thought is openly Marxist Lucas Dufour or calls on empirical explanatory schemes of Anglo-Saxon origin Athanassios N.
In both cases, the existence of Islam is a pivotal aspect in the examples from the European press analysed by these authors.

In Greece, the way the press presents terrorist attacks against the US can be accounted for by the deep-rooted anti-Americanism of contemporary Greek culture on the one hand, and traditional Greek hatred of Islam since the Ottoman occupation on the other. In both examples, the nature of European representations of Islam stems from something which is external to the Arabic world itself, in other words from ideological tenets that are specific to the two European countries in question.
