Abstract: This paper discusses the power of new media in mediating the Arab revolution. It looks at the coverage of popular satellite channels like Aljazeera and their role in galvanising the social movements that started in Tunisia and then embraced neighbouring countries like Egypt and Libya. The media role as a witness in these revolutions documents the horrors that took place during the protests and unprecedented social mobilisation that flared the region.
