From Eyes to Lens

For this post I am focusing on the ways in which Western media both skews and warps the ways in which we view the events taking place in the Middle East, along with the individuals involved. According to the Muftah article, many individuals are be underrepresented in the media. Media sources either fail to provide diverse viewpoints, or they gloss over important details and facts. Muftah is devoted to taking back the media from the West in order to show whats really going on in the Middle East with the revolutions. Although, the west is not the only ones to blame. According to the article Islamism beyond the Muslim Brotherhood, Egyptian media outlets are also responsible. Egyptian media and other media outlets in the Middle East are constantly shaping and reshaping the ways in which different individuals and parties are portrayed.
