The Impact of the Arab Media on the Economy
Before the war in Afghanistan in 2001, the Arab media was almost unknown for the countries outside the Middle East. Media is probably one of the most important weapons of the governments in order to manipulate and to mobilize people and due to this fact it can have a major influence on the global economy. The development of the Arab media can be divided into 3 historical stages: the colonial phase, when the Arabic media was created due to Napoleon, the post-colonial phase, which tried to use media in order to shape national transformation and independence and it was mainly influenced by loyalists, and the 1990s phase, when the first transnational satellite media emerged. Media itself can be defined as a battle zone. This paper has the aim to present the Arab media in brief, to show its relations with other international media and to present its influence on the media industry and economy.
