International Media Coverage of Bahrain Revolution
(PRESS TV) Ever since the Bahraini revolution broke out in February 2011, international news channels have covered it differently according to their geo-political priorities.
Western news channels have covered the events very sporadically and so have Arab news channels. Yet these same channels have covered unrest in Syria and Libya very closely.
So this indicates that while certain western and Arab media claim to be free and fair, they are in fact closely aligned to their government’s foreign policies.
Also we will look at how media coverage of Bahrain has stoked sectarianism and the role of Bahrain TV itself.
