Television and news programs exaggerate the real life events and political situation in Middle Eastern countries. This exaggeration affects the way people in the United States look at the Middle East. This problem is a product of the policies of news stations in framing their news reports and to the limited resources American people have as a window to that region. This article explores the influence of U.S. news and Al-Jazeera news in shaping the perspectives of the people in the United States toward the Middle East.
