Now more than ever, our hearts and minds, indeed, our day to day existence is
embedded in the Middle East. As we watch the reshaping of its geography and the
rewriting of its political narrative on our television screens, we've become
painfully aware of our role as spectators and that even spectatorship has its
responsibilities. While media news coverage of the current world conflict has
been constant and intense, the picture has been foggy, to say the least.
Framed! The Corporate Media at War examines the ongoing war of information and
images, taking a careful and critical look at how global, commercial media is
shaping public perception of the Middle East and its people.
