This article explores the relationship between American mass media and foreign international news channels on United States foreign policy. Initially, the paper examines the ability of contemporary global mass media to influence governments’ policy making. Then, it focuses on the ability of American mass media to influence the foreign policy decisionmaking at the White House. The last part of this article examines the influence that foreign global mass media (in this case, Al Jazeera) can or cannot have on U.S. foreign policy decisions. Finally, the article ends with an assessment of both the CNN Effect and the Al Jazeera Effect in terms of the significance and the benefits and/or drawbacks of their influence. In conclusion the article discusses whether the United States government has the ability to control this media influence and use it to support its policy agenda, and with an assessment of the future of the CNN effect and the Al Jazeera effect.
