Since September 11, Arab and American journalists have been trading barbs, accusing each other of bias and a lack of objectivity. But is news coverage in Arab countries all that different from American coverage? The Making of Arab News draws comparisons, including examples of Arabic news language and their English translations, to show how Arab news values have been Americanized and how these values are reflected in the language used in the Arab news.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Making of Arab News is a good contribution to Arab Media Studies. It offers an unprecedented rich melange of literature on the topic, drawing on empirical research conducted by both Arab and Western scholars. A very informative book. * Middle East Journal *
Noha Mellor's The Making of Arab News is a welcome addition to the scholarship in that it widens the scope of the discussion by looking at the linguistic and cutural parameters under which Arab news media operate. * European Journal Of Communication *
An indispensable resource for working journalists and scholars seeking to understand the Arab journalism world. Mellor's book traces the origin of journalistic practices and gives pause to those who thought they already knew everything they needed to know about Arab journalism. The author questions existing Western theories and concepts of the Arab press and provides readers with an invaluable alternative to currently accepted ideas of why Arab journalists do what they do. This is a highly readable book that deserves a place in any serious scholarly discussion of current and future Arab journalism. -- Dr. Ralph D. Berenger * Journal Of Transnational Broadcasting Studies *
