Centre for Global Media and Communications scholar on Al Jazeera
The Listening Post on Al Jazeera English is a weekly programme that examines and dissects the world’s media, how they operate and the stories they cover. This week it takes a look at the recent protests in Iraq which resulted in the loss of over 150 lives, a shutdown by the government of the internet and attacks on media outlets by unknown forces. Aida Al-Kaisy joins this weeks programme to talk about how the structural issues that have seen a highly politcised media environment flourish in Iraq have impacted on the recent events.
