The authors main thesis is that the Arab media lack journalistic autonomy and are simply an extension of their respective government policies. The Arab media both shapes and is shaped by the historical and political context of the region. From this Fandy concludes that the media is seldom part of what Western scholars call "civil society.

In the Arab world, al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiya are leading the fight. Mamoun Fandy is a senior fellow at the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London.

To those who believe that the Arab media, spearheaded by al Jazeera, have achieved enhanced professionalism and autonomy, Fandy offers a stern counterargument. The emir of Qatar does not just pay the bills while leaving al Jazeera free to broadcast all the news that's fit to air. Al Jazeera carries out Qatari political sniping at Saudi Arabia, and, in turn, the many different media outlets financed by Saudi Arabia (such as the news channel al Arabiya) advance Saudi political objectives.

Wwestport, CT and London, UK: Praeger Security International, 2007. Fandy's contribution to de Wwesternizing media theory comes in the form of a two-concept framework that he terms: wad'a al-yad (squatting) and kafil (sponsor), which he initiates as a "theoretical corrective" and a better alternative for the unpacking of the political economy of Arab media.

As the war on terror rages, another battleground has quickly taken shape and is being waged on daily newscasts around the world. In the Arab world, al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiya are leading the fight. But do these news networks simply provide the news? Or, are they, as westerners suspect, tools used by governments and terrorists alike to relay their message to the man on the street as both Arab and Western leaders struggle to win the hearts and minds of millions of people? Fandy examines the impact that these and other news organizations have had on the war on terror, on the Arab world, and on the relationships that Arab nations share with each other, as well as those they share with the West.

Focusing on al-Jazeera and other Arab networks, Fandy examines the battle between the Arab world and the West through the popular medium of television. He explores how autocratic governments control the media in order to preserve their own power while simultaneously engaging in a war of words, with their neighbors, the West, or many times, both.

A scholarly work that drills down to the core on why the predominantly Arab news organizations cover what they do and how they can portray the same incident in such different lights. Full of the intrigue and forces behind what is called news in the Arab world. Provides many thoughts on how we should engage with the Arab media (and as it points out, that means the media's political sponsors) to correct the misperceptions and downright falsehoods portrayed there.
