In parallel to these developments, a number of Arab countries entered the era of satellites broadcasting by launching their own media channels, which challenged and changed many of the traditional media concepts. In this context, we have seen the emergence of a number of specialized Arab news channels. Among the satellite channels that excelled in developing an innovative approach in reporting news, including news on terrorism events, were Al Jazeera and Al Arabiya channels. This study adopts a descriptive analytical approach to analyze the media coverage of the terrorism phenomenon after September 11 events. The research focuses on the ways in which media coverage of those events has been handled in the talk shows of both Al Jazeera and Al Arabiya. It tries to understand and identify the similarities and differences between the news frameworks used in these two channels during their coverage of terrorism acts.
