This book aims to understand the relationship between GCC countries respondents’ consumption of different news media and their perception of news issues. The book examines respondents’ news consumption habits and their motives for the choices they make. It fills the current gap in media scholarship concerning Arab media and how it affects the Arab public. It is clear that the arrival of satellite TV news channels has helped to improve human rights, press freedom and democracy throughout the region. Arabic news TV services have emerged as the leading news resource and source of information for respondents in the three Arab Gulf States. Al Jazeera and BBC (Arabic) TV were rated as highly credible sources. The study suggests that Arab audiences seek information from media they deem to be reliable and credible to gratify their need for news information.
