September 2011
Nieman Reports;Fall2011, Vol. 65 Issue 3, p42
The article focuses on the role of Arab mass and digital media in the political uprising and their implications for Arab journalists. News media gave coverage of the political unrest, analysis and interviews while digital media such as social media and text messaging stirred actions from journalists, activists and citizens. Among the observations of the author regarding news media in Arab countries is that younger people do not trust it and citizens expect a combination of news and views.
