Over the past twenty years the world of international newsgathering and diffusion has been transformed. Lightweight equipment and satellite uplinks have made it possible to send televised reports from anywhere in the world at any time. The rise of the satellite-distributed international news networks – including CNN, Sky News, BBC World and Al-Jazeera – has made news available, non-stop, in homes, offices and hotels all over the world. Will the façade of news objectivity crumble in the face of alternate definitions of the international news agenda? What does it mean for Arab communities across the globe to have world news available in Arabic and from Arab points of view? In International News in the Twenty-first Century influential journalists, scholars and activists probe the future of international news.
