  • "Control Room propose un double regard en coulisses sur la chaîne de télévision Al-Jazeera et au Centcom, le centre de presse de lâ‚‚armée américaine au Qatar, sur leur manière de diffuser lâ‚‚information lors de la guerre menée en Irak en 2003."
  • "Documentary that addresses issues of contemporary media coverage, showing the Iraq war as seen from the vantage point of Al-Jazeera, the Arab world's most popular news outlet. The film's central characters are Al-Jazeera journalist Hassan Ibrahim, Al-Jazeera producer Samir Khader and US military press officer Captain Josh Rushing, and their contrasting views make for an even-handed look at a complex situation."

  • "Documents the Arab television network Al Jazeera's coverage of the Iraq War and explores the impact of the media on viewers perceptions of truth worldwide."
  • ""Mention Al Jazeera three years ago and you'd likely get blank stares from most Americans; now the name of the Arab world's most popular news outlet is well known for its reporting of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and for American television's nearly obsessive coverage of that reporting. Charting the struggles of Al Jazeera, CNN, and other journalists to cover, or create, news, Control Room takes audiences inside the war in Iraq, or at least the buildings where it was presented--like Al Jazeera headquarters, as well as U.S. Central Command, site of the war's most important battles: the press conferences. Egyptian American filmmaker Jehane Noujaim (Startup.com) highlights the passion and intelligence of individuals on all sides, following not only the reporters hoping to cover the war, but the U.S. military officers anxious to control that coverage. For the journalists of Al Jazeera, the problem is twofold: getting information from an increasingly oppositional American military and then dealing with the fact that their network is suddenly 'news' itself. Featuring fascinating interviews with Al Jazeera and American journalists, as well as with U.S. commanders, this is not only a proverbial behind-the-scenes look at the Iraq War, but a laying bare of the hidden battle for the real 'enduring freedom': to cover a war without being controlled"--Pacific Film Archive program note."
  • "A chronicle which provides a rare window into the international perception of the Iraq War, courtesy of Al Jazeera, the Arab world's most popular news outlet. Criticized by Cabinet members and Pentagon officials for reporting with a pro-Iraqi bias, and strongly condemned for frequently airing civilian casualties as well as footage of American POW's, the station has revealed (and continues to show the world) everything about the Iraq War that the Bush administration does not want the public to see."@en

  • "Documentaire sur les principes fondamentaux, qui dévoile comment la vérité est recueillie, présentée et, finalement, façonnée par ceux qui nous la livrent. "Média sous contrôle" examine les relations complexes et immémoriales entre le monde occidental et arabe, et actuel puisqu'il révèle comment les reportages de guerre ont changé depuis l'utilisation des communications par satellite. Durant l'invasion de l'Irak, les reportages de la chaîne d'information en langue arabe Al-Jazeera ont provoqué maintes controverses en contredisant la rhétorique des médias officiels américains. Donald Rumsfeld l'accusera même de se faire le "porte-voix d'Oussama Ben Laden". Particulièrement attentive à la colère des victimes civiles des bombardements, la station jouit d'une grande popularité auprès du public du Moyen-Orient, où certains leaders arabes ont pourtant cherché à la faire interdire. Intriguée par le succès et la réputation d'Al-Jazeera, Jehane Noujaim filme les coulisses de son bureau central au Qatar, alors que débute l'opération "Iraki Freedom", qui débouchera sur la prise de Bagdad par l'armée américaine."
