Ashraf Galal of Qatar University presented the paper he wrote with Phil Auter and Mahmoud Galander of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, titled The Image of the United States Portrayed in Arab World Online Journalism.

Galal acknowledged that the American and Arab media both typically portray the other in a negative light, but that these are based on mutual false perceptions each has about the other.

“We need to provide communicators with accurate information to provide a solid basis for a dialogue,” Galal said.
