In order to know the what is Al Jazeera, mission and aims of Al Jazeera, we must first...
Jim Morrison succinctly summed up the role of media in our lives within a single line: Whoever controls the media controls the mind. This viewpoint is supported by another famous media critic whose theories have helped in dissecting the role of the media and understanding it true quality. Marshall McLuhan's characteristic take on the media is one of weariness and disenchantment.

Terrorism is engulfing the Media as it adds value whether it is local or global even evading constraints of proximity. Terrorism is a very weird concept to be bound in a definition, as it differs with perceptions and point of views. Western countries treat terrorism equivalent to a war situation. Often Media...
Everything related to the name of King of pop during his life was assimilated to spectacle. "Michael Jacksons whole life has been about constructing an image that isnt necessarily true". He was always amazed how much power he had on what is written about him in newspapers and on fans to make them believe everything he said (Peretti 2008).

In this essay I have chosen to use musician and composer Miles Davis as my subject. Known as not only one of the veterans of jazz, hes also one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. As one of the creators of the 'cool jazz' era, he is arguably one of the most well known jazz artists of all time, and was famous for frequently reinventing his sound and experimenting with electronic instruments, for example, he was well known for using a wah-wah pedal on his trumpet. In 1926, into...
