Arab world has seen fundamental changes since 2011 and the wave of political developments and the so-called Arab Spring revolutions have toppled four dictators in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Yemen. Mass media and satellite networks by online, professional and genuine reflection of political developments have made people aware of their rights and have mobilized them politically. This is much true for authoritarian countries that monopolize mass media and have deprived people of true information. Aljazeera is one of the satellite news networks which have had a significant role in the revolutions of the Arab world. Aljazeera by applying a delicate professionalism could attract a lot audience in the Arab World and even globally. But the approach of this network in the coverage of news and events in the Middle East and especially Syria has been biased and are directed along Qatari foreign policy.
This article by analytic-descriptive methodology firstly outlines theoretical deliberation about the mass media’s role in framing of political events; and secondly it analyses the Aljazeera’s role in Syrian crisis since March 2011.
