Abstract

The Arabic television station Aljazeera started broadcasting in 1996, after the BBC’s Arabic news channel venture with Saudi-backed network Orbit failed, following differences over editorial censorship and policy. A number of public debates and controversies, as well as academic arguments, have surrounded Aljazeera since its inception, but neither the station’s critics nor its supporters can deny that the network has had a regional as well as a global impact. In this study, I will examine and critically evaluate scholarly works on the journalistic and political nature of Aljazeera, through a critical evaluation of three media models. I will focus my research upon two main points, the first being an analysis of the main models identified by academic works on Aljazeera, and the second being an examination of whether the concept of a ‘model’, as used in social sciences, applies to all Aljazeera programs.
