The Arab media is in the midst of a revolution that will inform questions of war and peace in the Middle East, political and societal reform, and relations between the West and the Arab World. Drawing on the first broad cross-border survey of Arab journalists, first-person interviews with scores of reporters and editors, and his three decades' experience reporting from the Middle East, Laurence Pintak examines how Arab journalists see themselves and their mission at this critical time in the evolution of the Arab media. He explores how, in a diverse Arab media landscape expressing myriad opinions, journalists are still under siege as governments fight a rear-guard action to manage the message. This innovative book breaks through the stereotypes about Arab journalists to reveal the fascinating and complex reality - and what it means for the rest of us.

By his death in April 2009 the ICF had become a major international organisation. Media Values brings together the writings of 27 experienced international journalists and artists to celebrate Bill Porter’s life and reflect on the values that he promoted through the ICF.• Bernard Margueritte argues that the moral leadership provided by men such as Bill Porter can inspire us all to work for higher standards in the media• Fabrice Boulé advocates the role of the media in conflict resolution.• Alan Channer stresses the role of the theatre as a force for good• John B Fairfax traces the impact of proprietors on newspaper history• Carol Goar explains how she learned some risks are worth taking• Martyn Lewis promotes solution-oriented journalism• Rafael Marques de Morais assesses media standards in Angola.• Natalya Skvortsova suggests its time for journalists to admit their mistakes• Bob Webb argues that all journalists have a duty to challenge racism.One section of Media Values concentrates on the new ethical dilemmas facing journalists in the age of the internet. Magnus Linklater for instance, argues that, while the advent of the internet and 24/7 news operations are changing the face of journalism, there is no reason why the industry should abandon the principles on which it is founded.

How has globalization impacted on sports media? What are the economic ramifications? And what is the future of sports media? In order to answer these questions, this book investigates the constituents, dimensions and implications of the flows of media sport from the Global West to the Global East, and in the reverse direction. At an historical moment when the relative stability of the Western media sport order is under challenge, it analyses a range of key structures, practices and issues whose ramifications extend far beyond the fields of play and national contexts in which sport events take place. The book will appraise and analyse the state of sports television, rise of new sports media, emergence of hybrid sport cultural forms, eruption of sport-related political controversies, scandals and power struggles, mutations of forms of global sport fandom, and projections of the future of global media sport. In bringing together the latest research from across a number of disciplines, this book offers an exciting contribution to the emerging field of global sports media.
