Description or Abstract
What are Western views of the Muslim Brotherhood based on Western media in the aftermath of the Arab Spring of 2011? Analyzing a range of Western media and their audiences' responses from Jan 25 to May 31, this paper reveals that although there are people that have different views of the brotherhood, Western media predominantly gives the Muslim Brotherhood an image of radicalism and extremism.
