By Lawrence Pintak
There exists this day a sad rift among americans and the world’s Muslims. but within the quick aftermath of Sep 11, there has been common sympathy for the U.S. during the Muslim global. This ebook explores what occurred. It examines the disconnect that leads americans and Muslims to view an analogous phrases and photographs in essentially other ways. partially because of the a centuries-old 'us' opposed to 'them' dichotomy, the matter is exacerbated via an more and more polarised media and through leaders on either side who both do not comprehend or do not care what impression their phrases and guidelines have on the planet at large.
Journalist-scholar Lawrence Pintak, a former CBS information heart East correspondent, argues that the Arab media revolution and the increase of 'patriot-journalists' within the US marginalized voices of moderation, distorting perceptions on either side of the divide with almost certainly disastrous results.
Built at the author's broad journalistic adventure, the e-book will attract policymakers, scholars of media experiences, center East reviews and Islamic stories, and normal present affairs readers.
