Published: Updated:

Dr. Abeer Al-Najjar, an Associate Professor at the UAE-based American University of Sharjah, describes the relation between mainstream media and the extremist Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group.

Her remarks were in response to the Al Arabiya News Global Discussion entitled: “ISIS -- a brand built by the media?”
