Description: This pioneering analysis examines the rise of Al Jazeera English: the early editorial agenda, production strategies and news output of the first global news channel headquartered in the Middle East. The growth of transnational satellite television has transformed the global media landscape into a complex web of multivocal, multimedia and multi-directional flows. Based on a combination of policy-, production- and content-analysis of comprehensive empirical data, the book offers an innovative perspective on the theorization of global news contra-flows. It challenges the extant news flow literature, by going beyond the directionality of news flows and focusing on the political and/or commercial strategies behind the production process involved in and content of satellite news contra-flows.By problematizing and investigating the distinctive characteristics of Al Jazeera English, this study examines the strategic motivation behind the channel and the ways in which its production processes and news profile are meant to be different from dominant flows. These questions underscore a central nexus of this book: the changing relationship between transnational satellite news and power.
