Rashmi Vasudeva Azadi on the Idiot Box. An analysis of television coverage of Kashmir

Project Report from the year 2011 in the subject Communications - Mass Media, grade: 7.6, Swansea University, course: Erasmus Mundus Masters in Globalisation and Media, language: English, abstract: Kashmir has been a contested territory since the time of India's independence in 1947. In the summer of 2010, the deaths of a number of civilians, mostly teenagers, in renewed clashes with security forces led to widespread unrest. As the death toll mounted, public anger grew and cries of 'azaadi [freedom]' became louder, prompting some commentators to call this Kashmir's own intifada. India still suffers from low levels of literacy and public understanding of the conflict in Kashmir is largely mediated by television. This makes it surprising that there has been so little academic research on the representation of Kashmir in the Indian media in general and on television in particular. This is more unfortunate if one takes into account the passions which the Kashmir conflict arouses, the intensity of its coverage when it is 'in the news' and the fact that India has the largest number of commercial news channels in the world. This dissertation analyses the coverage of the 2010 Kashmir protests on two Indian commercial TV news channels, Times Now and CNN-IBN.

Alexandra Pfleiderer The Greek debt crisis in German news

Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject Communications - Media and Politics, Politic Communications, grade: 1,7, University of Aarhus, course: Political communication, language: English, abstract: The German media has recently been strongly criticized for its coverage of the sovereign debt crisis in Greece. Critics say that journalists tend to represent Greece, its politiciansand the people, in a very negative way. Against the background of the quality news media's normative role in information coverage and the framing concept, this paper examines howthe German news media covered the sovereign debt crisis in Greece recently, and if the current criticism is justified. To examine this, I gathered data from the German newspaperSüddeutsche Zeitung to look at how the Greek debt crisis and the latest events were covered in the time period of 29 June to 19 July 2015. The articles are examined by textual analysis. The findings are contrasted with the theoretical and empirical background and the literature review.

Chris Veits Conflict Coverage Promotion. High Quality or High Concept. A multimodal analysis of claims-making in conflict coverage promotional spots of Al Jazeera English and CNN International

Today even the war and conflict coverage of 24-hour news networks is subject to heavy promotion and part of the networks' advertising and branding campaigns. These commercial aspects of news production, however, seem to oppose concepts of journalistic quality. This study analyses claims of journalistic quality and 'high concept' in conflict coverage promotion spots and how they are linked to better understand the ideological complexes of CNN International and Al Jazeera English. The findings show an equal number of quality and 'high concept' claims with differences in the nature of the claims between the two networks. Strong patterns are found in quality and 'high concept' claims of both 24-hour television news networks. The largest number appears in the visual mode. The research also shows that analysing this kind of media text needs to be multimodal and that a social semiotic approach is appropriate for analysing claims-making and linking in conflict coverage promotional spots.

Chris Veits High Concept or High Quality

Master's Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Communications - Journalism, Journalism Professions, grade: Distinction, Swansea University, course: Erasmus Mundus M.A. in Journalism, Media and Globalization (War and Conflict), language: English, abstract: Since the 1970s, commercial pressures on news media organizations have increased and as a result, television news networks have started to adapt marketing and product differentiation strategies from the Hollywood movie industry. So today, even the war and conflict coverage of 24-hour news networks is subject to heavy promotion and part of the networks' advertising and branding campaigns. These commercial aspects of news production, however, seem to oppose concepts of journalistic quality. Conflict coverage promotion and image spots of 24-hour news networks therefore pose a great opportunity to investigate a phenomenon at the cross-roads of both commercial entertainment television and quality journalism. This study analyses claims ofjournalistic quality and 'high concept' in these spots and how they are linked to better understand the ideological complexes of CNN International and Al Jazeera English. The findings show an equal number of quality and 'high concept' claims with differences in the nature of the claims between the two networks. The way the claims are distributed throughout the modes of visual, voice, sound and music, as well as the way they are linked within and across modes, however, sh...

Anteneh Mekuria Tesfaye Magnitude and Nature of HIV/AIDS Coverage in the Ethiopian Press

In all programs in the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic, there is a general consensus that information and education remain the backbone. To disseminate information, the media can play a significant role. However, various commentators have claimed that the media have been an underutilized force in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Moreover, studies of media coverage of HIV/AIDS conducted in various parts of the world have shown that scant coverage and distorted portrayal are almost the rule of the day. Generally speaking, however, whether the media are using their roles in the prevention of HIV/AIDS effectively remains a subject of scholarly debate. In Ethiopia, imperial information about media coverage of HIV/AIDS is sparse. This book, therefore, provides detailed analyzes of the magnitude and nature of HIV/AIDS coverage in Ethiopian newspapers. Since the analysis was made using different theories and other researches as a backdrop, the book provides important implications not only about the coverage of HIV/AIDS but also about theoretical underpinnings. The book will be useful for students, journalists, researchers and professionals in the field of media and communications.

What role can the ordinary citizen perform in news reporting? This question goes to the heart of current debates about citizen journalism, one of the most challenging issues confronting the news media today. In this timely and provocative book, Stuart Allan introduces the key concept of ‘citizen witnessing’ in order to rethink familiar assumptions underlying traditional distinctions between the ‘amateur’ and the ‘professional’ journalist. Particular attention is focused on the spontaneous actions of ordinary people – caught-up in crisis events transpiring around them – who feel compelled to participate in the making of news. In bearing witness to what they see, they engage in unique forms of journalistic activity, generating firsthand reportage – eyewitness accounts, video footage, digital photographs, Tweets, blog posts – frequently making a vital contribution to news coverage. Drawing on a wide range of examples to illustrate his argument, Allan considers citizen witnessing as a public service, showing how it can help to reinvigorate journalism’s responsibilities within democratic cultures. This book is required reading for all students of journalism, digital media and society.

News Media and the Neoliberal Privatization of Education

A volume in Critical Constructions: Studies On Education and SocietySeries Editors: Curry Stephenson Malott, West Chester University of Pennsylvania; Brad J. Porfilio, California State University, East Bay; Marc Pruyn, Monash University; and Derek R. Ford, Syracuse UniversityThis edited volume contributes to a burgeoning field of critical scholarship on the news media and education. This scholarship is based on an understanding that the news media has increasingly applied a neoliberal template that mediates knowledge and action about education. This book calls into question what the public knows about education, how the public is informed, and whose interests are represented and ultimately served through the production and distribution of information by the news media about education. The chapters comprising this volume serve to enlighten and call to action parents, students, educators, academics and scholars, activists, and policymakers for social, political, and economic transformation. Moreover, as the neoliberal agenda in North America intensifies, the chapters in this book help to deepen our understanding of the logics and processes of the neoliberal privatization of education and the accompanying social discourses that facilitate the reduction of social relations to a transaction in the marketplace. The chapters examine the news media and the reproduction of neoliberal educational reforms (A Nation at Risk, Teach For America, charter schools, think tanks, and PISA) and ...

The question which I will try to answer is, whether women are portrayed significantly different from men and if so, in how far this is brought about linguistically.After giving a short synopsis of why a non- discriminatory treatment of women in the media may be favourable, I will first give statistical evidence from the material collected and supplement this with statistical information on where women stand in society.I will then go on to analyse staff and correspondents to see in how far women are involved in the perceptible news production or news reception.After having finished these chapters leading up to the topic of the linguistic analysis, I will then focus on the language in the newspapers. Here, attention will be both on the grammatical and the lexical level.On the lexical level telling semantic devices will be categorisation, generic usage, marked expressions and naming, among others.On the grammatical level, clause structures, noun phrases, verb phrases, activity, passivity and others will be of interest.A final conclusion will summarise the findings.The material used will be the internet editions of five m...

Ellen Egyptien Protest Policing and the Magnitude of Distortion by the Western Press

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Communications - Media and Politics, Politic Communications, grade: 2, Maastricht University (Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences), language: English, abstract: In order to get information about protests and social movements that are going on somewhere in the world, people consider the news for keeping up to date. The coverage of protests and other news which are provided by the mass media in general, need to be looked at from a critical perspective. When political dissent changes into a crisis, threatening to escalate as it was the case in Kiev at the end of 2013, then the state responses with the policing of protest, which can be defined as the "police handling of protest events - a more neutral description for what protesters usually refer to as repression and the state as law and order" (Porta & Reiter, 1998, p. 1). Reputation and people´s opinion about the general situation of a crisis and the executive power which has to carry out the instructions of the state can be shaped by news media to a great extent. Since the citizen is not in attendance of the protests and for the majority of people, the main source of information about the situation are indeed the mass media. It is consequently logic that they have a substantial impact on public opinion. Thus, the question that arises here is how far this exerted media influence can get. Therefore the news consumer needs to be aware of the background and context of t...

Mavis Boamah Impact of online newsportals on the patronage of newspapers in Ghana

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Communications - Research, Studies, Enquiries, grade: 80.00, Ghana Institute of Journalism, language: English, abstract: The invention of the World Wide Web in the last decade has made information sharing very personal, convenient and easy. The growing trend of this new communication has facilitated the establishment of a medium through which news can be accessed without the purchase of a hardcopy newspaper, radio or television. Because of this, almost all television and radio stations as well as hardcopy newspapers in Ghana have an online representation of news. Could the introduction of the internet and online news portals be taking over from the traditional media or these portals complement traditional media? Data collected and findings of the study indicated that online news portals directly have an impact on the patronage of newspapers in Ghana but have not totally displaced newspapers. This is because while most respondents heavily depended on online news portals for information and majority felt satisfied, few others relied on newspapers for specific information such as job advertisements.Keywords: social media, online news, newspapers, news websites, newspaper patronage.

Adam C. Peter Television and Democratization in Mexico - Media Markets, TV Content and Voter Behavior in Mexico

Despite having operated under the pretense of democracy for the entirety of its 71-years of single party rule, Mexico was not a democratic state. From 1929 to 2000 Mexico was ruled by a single authoritarian regime, the PRI. Part of the PRI's long-lasting success came from its close relationship with what was Mexico's only private television network (Televisa). During most of the PRI's rule, Televisa news coverage had been heavily biased in favor of the ruling party. This book examines the relationship between television campaign coverage and the later stages of Mexico's transition to democracy. It is the contention of this book that the media, and in particular television, was a driving force behind Mexico's democratization. But this is not the entire story. Without the 1993 privatization of Mexico's television market, this change may not have come about. Unless the markets in which mass media operate are open and competitive, the media will not function in a manner that is conducive to democratization. This book examines television's capacity to influence political behavior and also how media content can be shaped by market structure.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Augsburg (Lehrstuhl für Englische Sprachwissenschaft), language: English, abstract: Every day new things happen. With modern technology, news can be distributed all over the world and faster than ever before. Additionally, the distribution of (and access to) news has become much cheaper. Consequently, the number of sources we can get information from has increased drastically throughout the last decades, as has the amount of information. In our modern information society, the mass media have come to play a decisive role. At the same time, it becomes more and more difficult to judge the reliability of the news. One of the oldest forms of mass media, which is still generally regarded as trustworthy, is the newspaper.When it comes to newspapers, people usually prefer one (or two) specific news¬papers to others. Every newspaper has its own specific image which includes some characteristics that it is generally known for. If all newspapers provided all the news there is and reported it in an objective manner, this would not make much sense. Indeed, with the amount of potential "news" emerging every day and the restrictions of the medium, it is impossible to cover everything - the newspapers must choose what to include in their coverage and what not to. Similarly, it is an illusion to expect news to be reported completely objectively. One reason fo...

Joyce Gambishi Media in Active Citizenship

There are increasing rates in passive citizenship and deterioration on patriotism among citizens (especially in rural areas). Despite major efforts that have been taken in educating societies in Tanzania active citizenship is declining. Media organizations whether electronic or print have the responsibility to sensitize people on citizenship matters. This is because media is powerful in persuasion and can influence people effectively if used creatively. This book is analyzing Media coverage on active citizenship. It sought to find out the extent of media coverage and its influence to people towards active citizenship. The main objective of media in active citizenship is to stimulate media to increase infotainment educational programs that entice people to listen and be part of sharing their responsibility and accountability to societies in Tanzania. The major theories in this book are social responsibility and users' gratification which express how media perform for public interest and consumers' satisfaction of the media messages. These theories link the media responsibility to the society and meeting satisfaction of people in order to persuade people towards intended goal.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Communications - Journalism, Journalism Professions, grade: 8.7, Kenyatta University (Media Technology and Advanced Communication), course: Bachelors: Mass communication and Journalism, language: English, abstract: Environmental issues represent a very low proportion of all stories covered by newspapers; these stories also suffer from content limitations. No coverage of environmental issues in the popular media is likely to be a straight forward treatment of the facts due to many practical constrains, some of which are inherent in the structure and values of modern news reporting. Some of these constrains are: misreporting or miscommunication, low levels of journalistic training in science reporting and writing, media time and space constrains and commercial pressures. The objectives guiding the study are: how regularly are environmental conservation stories published and why they are not published as regularly and with such prominence as other stories of political and entertainment nature. A descriptive survey design will be used. This involves content analysis per se primarily as a tool of data collection. Purposive sampling dictated the choice of THE DAILY NATION and THE STANDARD as newspapers whose content shall be analyzed. The selection of media outlets was based on popularity and the number of published copies and the rating of selected newspapers. The period under analysis will be between the month of May and June.Cons...

Daniel Flores South of Heaven. My Year in Afghanistan

In late 2005, the total casualties in Afghanistan were just barely over one hundred; meanwhile, the news agencies were publicizing, each day, the thousands of American soldiers who were dying in Iraq. There was rarely any mention at all of the conflict going on in Afghanistan. Little did Daniel Flores know that one year later he would be witness to the Taliban resurgence and lose some of his friends in the war. He was locked in a battle for his life against a determined enemy, in one of the most notorious and highly contested valleys in the Hindu Kush, in his Apache gunship-without bullets. South of Heaven is the searing memoir of Flores's year-long tour of duty in Afghanistan. One of his missions was featured in a segment on the Military Channel's My War Diary program. The segment was based on the rescue of an American Convoy in the Tagab Valley in Afghanistan. The video and audio footage of the actual battle that he shot with his own equipment was used in the production. The final week of his rotation in-country was a true test of his faith and his daughter's faith that he would return home unharmed.

Journalism, what happened? In the last decade, the industry and the profession have been rocked to the core. Newspapers as consumer product are as ripe for comic mocking and satire as are the techniques of the journalism profession. The contemporary death and life of journalism is the story of an historic cultural transition. We have lived through the end of the mass-media era and the beginning of the networked-media era. We took in news one way for a century and we simply don't do it like that anymore. Networked: A Contemporary History of News in Transition examines this moment in journalism, the conditions that brought it about and the characteristics that have shaped it and will shape its future. In crafting this sophisticated yet accessible study, new-media scholar Adrienne Russell draws on personal interviews with journalists and analysts at the center of the shift, examines innovative and revealing digital news projects, and underlines larger cultural changes that reflect the new news reality. Networked also examines emergent journalism practices that suggest the forces at work and the stakes involved in developments we have all experienced but, caught up in the rush of change, have had limited perspective to interpret.

Allen Drury Capable of Honor

It is one of the most fundamental questions facing America today: How justifiably, or irresponsibly, do the volatile and unbiased American media-press, television and radio-attempt to interfere with, and control, the political process and the foreign policy of the nation? In a hotly fought Presidential primary, the news media fractures along ideological lines, supporting and distorting the candidates' records, manipulating the news rather than covering it. Capable of Honor, the third novel in the grand, bestselling Advise and Consent saga, is a compelling blockbuster that shines a harsh and revealing spotlight on how the media shapes the news, guides public opinion, creates policy-and tries to shape history itself.

Feyisa Girma Bedanie New Media as Sources of News

This book is on the use of new media as a source of news in Oromia Mass Media Organization. Particularly it focuses on the opportunities and challenges of using the New media by journalists. Both qualitative and quantitative approaches were applied in the study underpinning the book. The result showed that almost all the journalists lack the knowledge to browse information from the Internet. Majority of them have no access to computer or Internet in their media organization. The journalists are far behind the information about events that are taking place worldwide as a result of lack of access to the Internet. Language barrier is also found to be another aspect that contributes to the low level use of new media by journalists. The problem of poor access to Internet is attributed mainly to the poor infrastructure of this media house. Lack of financial resource and less attention to new media sector is also another problem. Therefore, there is a strong need to direct priority to the expansion of new media infrastructure in the media organizations and building the capacity of journalists.

Allauddin Kakar The US-Afghanistan Relations during Obama Era. Implications for Pakistan

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2014 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: South Asia, grade: B, Quaid I Azam University (School of Politics & IR), course: International Relations, language: English, abstract: In the context of 9/11 and the ongoing war against terror, the US role in Afghanistan has transitioned from Bush's engagement to Obama's end game for Afghanistan. This transition has been put forth in the form of the US-Afghan exit strategy and the US Af-Pak policy. Both these policies and strategies do not only affect the state of Afghanistan alone but also the other state regional stake holders in this region. One of the primary affected parties in this Afghan quagmire is Pakistan which has a major stake in the peace and stability of Afghanistan.Pakistan is a neighboring state of Afghanistan, which played an active role in supporting the Afghan Jihad against the Soviet invasion inside Afghanistan. In the Post-Soviet era inside Afghanistan, Pakistan like the other regional powers tried to protect its national interests in the region through proxy involvement in Afghanistan. It was the support from Pakistan which played a crucial role in the ascendance of the Taliban movement inside Afghanistan. In the aftermath of the 9/11 and the rise of militancy in the South Asia, Pakistan suffered a lot in terms of human and financial loss. Terrorism is not only a problem of US and the Afghanistan alone. Pakistan considers it as its biggest problem in t...

The first in-depth, authoritative discussion of the role of the press in China and the way the Chinese government uses the media to shape public opinion China's 1.3 billion population may make the country the world's largest, but the vast majority of Chinese share remarkably similar views on these and a wide array of other issues, thanks to the unified message they get from tightly controlled state-run media. Official views are formed at the top in organizations like the Xinhua News Agency and China Central Television and allowed to trickle down to regional and local media, giving the appearance of many voices with a single message that is reinforced at every level. As a result, the Chinese are remarkably like-minded on a wide range of issues both domestic and foreign.

Amalia Oganjanyan The August War in Georgia. Foreign Media Coverage

Reporting on a foreign war or a crisis is a challenging activity, a true professional test for a journalist. Media is often criticized for promoting violence by its conflict reporting: either by staying detached or by being biased.Peace, or conflict-sensitive, journalism was created for improvement of conflict coverage: it emphasizes the active role of journalists in de-escalation of conflict and encourages them to report on peaceful solutions. This relatively novel approach might be met with skepticism, as it appears too idealistic and demanding to be followed by journalists. In order to verify the applicability of peace journalism, this book presents a comparative analysis of six US, UK and German newspapers on how conflict-sensitive, or at least balanced, they were in their reporting on the Russia-Georgia war of 2008. The content analysis of those six media has demonstrated that the peace journalism approach is not easy to implement into practice due to some imperfections of its models; its parameters need to become more feasible and more specific. The case study has showed that those particular western media were neither conflict-sensitive nor war-oriented in their coverage of the Russia-Georgia war, and thus they kept the in-between stance. Overall, the reporting was balanced, particularly in its negative attitude towards all parties involved in the conflict.

Also for those citizens, who decided on the adaption of the Lisbon treaty in the two nationwide referendums in Ireland. But as many media researchers showed, news coverage is biased (Entman 1993, Scheufele 2003). It has to be biased, because it is simply notpossible to report the whole reality in one article (Downs 1957).One aspect of news bias is known under the term framing. Entman (1993: 52) defines to frame as follows "to select some aspects of a perceived reality and make them more salient in a communicating text, in such a way as to promote a particular problem definition, causal interpretation, moral evaluation, and/or treatment recommendation."A different framing of the same ballot can induce individuals to make different choices. Such effects are known as framing effects (Scheufele 2003, de Vreese 2005a. This paper follows these hints and examines the news coverage before the two Irish referendums on the Lisbon treaty. Applying a content analysis of the two most sellingIrish newspapers, The Irish Times and the Irish Independent, it aims to make statements about the framing of the treaty in the news and to give evide...

Mule Ndonye Michael Media and 2013 Political Process in Kenya

Today, media remains the most influential institution in the world. Given its power, it has become an inevitable tool for advertising, advocacy, and passing information in developed and developing countries. We know media, new and traditional, in political processes because of the hype that comes with politics. In Kenya, media has had its ups and downs since independence. The infamous 2007/2008 post election violence will take time to be forgotten and the narration of the ordeals of the violence can not pass without mentioning media's role. This book examines the use of media by Kenyan politicians, especially the social media and particularly twitter; the significant case study that Kenyan media launched by holding the first presidential debate prior to March 4th elections: an event that proved to shape voter decision; and the failures of Kenyan media as a watchdog in the coverage of the 2013 elections in Kenya. This book will be fit for those who want to explore the role of media in political communication. The future lies in the hands of media. True or false?

Caroline Elizabeth Klibanoff News Literacy, Informed Citizens and Consumer-Driven Media. The Future Landscape of American Journalism

Today, Americans face the challenge of information overload through increasingly accessible mediums, making it harder to identify valuable information and to move fluently and efficiently through social media, news and entertainment platforms. And yet, because of this profound connectivity, user engagement levels are at an all-time high. Individual consumers have more power than ever to shape the changing digital world and demand high-quality information merely by connecting with news sources online. It is of utmost importance, then, that this very consumer class is as informed and educated as possible in regards to the value of accurate, verified journalism and high-quality reporting, in order to demand a better journalistic product and to fulfill the American ideal of an informed, engaged citizenry.

School Shootings. Mediatized Violence in a Global Age

School shootings have raised considerable interest among scholars as a global (media) cultural phenomenon and have increased specifically in the 1990s developing into a seeming cultural epidemic. This book contributes to the current academic discussion on school shootings by analysing this phenomenon in a broader context of mediatization in contemporary social and cultural life. Mediatized logic has the power to influence us as individuals communicating about the shootings and experiencing the shootings as victimizers, victims, witnesses or bystanders. In three sections, this book explores shootings from different, yet interconnected, perspectives: (1) a theoretical focus on media and school shootings within various sociological and cultural dimensions, specifically how contemporary media transform school shootings into mediatized violence; (2) a focus on the practices of mediatization, with emphasis on mediated coverage of school shootings and its political, cultural, social and ethical implications; and (3) an examination of the audiences, victims and witnesses of school shootings as well as organizations which try to manage these public crimes of significant media interest.

Victor Khroul Religion and Media in Russia

Can we understand religion without media? Can we understand media without religion? How do these influent social sub-systems interact in public sphere? The author puts these questions into the context of contemporary Russia and analyzes media-religion relations from functional and ethical perspectives. Based on several case studies and the analysis of value dialogue in society, the monograph book examines the mediatization of religions and shows dysfunctions and "system errors" of the process in Russia. Classifying different situations when religions face the media and vice versa, the author presents some empirically proved dysfunctions in the coverage of religious life. Drawing attention to particular features of the Russian context (agenda-setting, public opinion, media landscape etc), the author analyzes a set of significant problems in media-religion relations: axiological (the lack of value consensus in Russian society), evaluative (almost invisible moral monitoring in mass media) and communicative (problems with the dialogue of value systems in the public sphere). The monograph book might be useful to sociologists, media and communications experts and journalists.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2016 in the subject Communications - Journalism, Journalism Professions, grade: Very Good, Addis Ababa University (Social Sciences), language: English, abstract: This research investigated into the factors that detract news reporting in East Africa, focusing on the Ethiopian Herald and Kenyan Daily Nation. To attain this objective, mixed research approach had been employed. More specifically, in depth interviews, questionnaires and content analysis were integrated. The data then were analyzed concurrently using simple descriptive method and narration.The results have shown that there are internal and external factors that detract news reporting. News value, perception of journalists, and editorial interests are found major internal factors that create detraction while government influences, NGOs and other private profit making companies are identified as external factors. To mend these detractive factors the newsrooms need to work based on their editorial policies and need to ensure their editorial independence.African academia of journalism and newsrooms in general need to work in close proximity and better hammer on what African journalism should look like. Equally, press freedom is vital to build a sustainable nation-state. Thus, governments have to leave adequate space to media people so that they can carry out their jobs freely and professionally.

Matthew Bugeja Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan. Nation-Building and Combating Al-Qaeda.s Ideology

This book explores the threats posed by al Qaeda in Afghanistan and examines the Western narrative of whether it is necessary to eliminate the militant threat in order to stabilize the country. It is argued that Al Qaeda's ideology has now become stronger than its ability to threaten international security; that its aim to become an agent of change within the Muslim world has come to outweigh the threat attributed to it as a conventional, kinetic, and terrorist entity. The current instability within Afghanistan is not due to al Qaeda's physical presence there but rather an amalgamation of factors. It will be argued that the U.S.-led invasion in 2001 has contributed to Al Qaeda's weakening there but it has not contributed to stabilize Afghanistan itself. The instability in Afghanistan will require a strong, long-term commitment by the international community, while the fight against Al Qaeda will require more focus on combating its ideology, and less on military action.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Communications - Media and Politics, Politic Communications, grade: 1,0, University of Applied Sciences Osnabrück, course: Kommunikationsmanagement, language: English, abstract: The ongoing war in Iraq was precipitated by a flurry of spin and propaganda originating from the White House. In September 2002, the U.S. administration kicked off a communication campaign almost unprecedented in its dimensions, in order to convince Congress and the public of a military strike in Iraq; a campaign so skillfully woven that a huge part of the U.S. media industry seemed to forget its 'watchdog'-role and went out of its way to surpass the others in patriotism, critical coverage be damned. In early 2003, however, many of Washington's claims and assertions were slowly beginning to get publicly questioned or downright proven wrong by experts and the media, especially when no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq after extensive searches. A question surfaced that had not been explicitly asked in the months before the war: the question whether the administration might have misled the American people into war by exaggerating the threat Saddam Hussein posed to the world and, in order to do so, might even have manipulated evidence. However, a question just as important is, whether the American media lost sight of its obligations in the run-up to war, and by temporarily neglecting its standards of objectivity and neutrality gave ...

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Region: Naher Osten, Vorderer Orient, Note: 2,6, Universität Kassel, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Afghanistan war lange Zeit aus dem Blick und den Gedanken der Öffentlichkeit verschwunden. Dies änderte sich schlagartig mit den Terroranschlägen vom 11. September 2001 in den USA. Die Taliban, mit ihrem Anführer Osama Bin Laden, welche in Afghanistan zu diesem Zeitpunkt herrschten, wurden für die Terroranschläge verantwortlich gemacht. Kurze Zeit nach den Anschlägen begannen die USA durch Luftangriffe eine Intervention in Afghanistan. Somit stand Afghanistan nun im Mittelpunkt der Berichterstattungen und war wieder in den Köpfen der Menschen präsent. Die Taliban wurden recht schnell besiegt, allerdings dauert der Militäreinsatz von den USA und einigen Staaten der internationalen Staatengemeinschaft noch bis heute an. Doch wie konnte es zur Machtergreifung und den Terroranschlägen durch die Taliban und das Terrornetzwerk Al Quaida kommen? Afghanistan war bereits seit langer Zeit in den Prozessen eines Staatszerfalls gefangen. Nur so war die Machtergreifung der Taliban möglich. Wie kam es zu dem Staatszerfall in Afghanistan? Wie kann es für Afghanistan nach der Intervention durch die USA und der nun seit 12 Jahren andauernden Militäroperation der internationalen Staatengemeinschaft mit weitergehen? Noch herrscht in dem Land kein Frieden. Doch wie kann ein solcher, nach so langer Zeit eines Militärein...

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject American Studies - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,0, Free University of Berlin (John-F.-Kennedy-Institut ), course: The Media and Public Opinion in US Foreign Policy, language: English, abstract: It is widely known that the public in the U.S. counts on the mass media to get information about political affairs these days (Pew Research Center 2010: 1), not only because it is hardly possible for people to gather all the political information they get from the media by themselves but also because political issues are usually very complex and difficult to compre-hend without any guidance (cf. Berinsky/Kinder 2006: 641). What the public knows about politics - which is the basis of public debate and can shape public opinion - therefore depends to a large extent on what journalists convey in the news (cf. Simon/Xenos 2010: 363; de Vreese 2005: 51). This is also a crucial fact for political actors because they have to take the media into account whenever they want to convey a message or opinion about a political con-cern to the public. Among the most important messages from political actors to the people are presidential speeches because they very often include vital decisions for the country or new strategies in an ongoing conflict. By giving a speech to the nation a president can not only justify political plans but also shape those plans in a way that makes them worthy of support among the public and the Congress. Thus, a president's ...

Javad Gholami, Neda Safdari Incidental Focus on Form in Talk Show Classes

In recent years, a large number of empirical studies have been carried out on the type, rate, and effectiveness of planned reactive focus on form (FonF). However, incidental reactive and preemptive FonF in general and their linguistic coverage in particular have not enjoyed this much attention. This book explores the frequency of reactive and preemptive incidental FonF, their linguistic coverage, and uptake in a communicatively-oriented EFL Talk Show class, where the primary attention is on negotiation of ideas and meaningful interactions. The book attempts to expand our accounts of FonF by addressing the relationship between preemptive as well as reactive Focus on Form Episodes in terms of their linguistic coverage of vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation in an Iranian Talk Show class. It also examines the correspondence between the linguistic coverage of reactive and preemptive FFEs and the rate of uptake following them. Studying this book is highly recommended for language teachers, SLA researchers, and applied linguists as it provides valuable insights on providing earners with opportunities to attend to linguistic forms during meaning-focused activities.

"The presence of television is influencing the future of China in ways that no other technology or human agency can" (J. Lull). Given its' importance, both culturally and politically, the television industry is one of the most interesting industries in China. However, a quick review of regulations and market realities showed that there are virtually no foreign channels in the country and probably won't be for a while; therefore the focus of this report is foreign television content entering China - and, to a slightly lesser degree, Chinese content in global markets. All video genres are discussed here, with news and current affairs programming being a special case. The first part of this report is a short introduction that includes the history of political influence and a review of existing regulations. After this overview, the industry and major players (namely CCTV, Xinhua, News Corp, Phoenix, Disney, Discovery, Viacom) are introduced and analyzed. Here, the issue of cultural imperialism, or Western media influence, is elaborated on. Then, the paper discusses the opportunities for international firms in the Chinese media market and the tension between Government control and market liberalisation. A compelling answer to the question of who will dominate the domestic market in ten years is developed. Finally, the impact of Chinese content on international markets will be assessed within the same timeframe. This is particularly interesting as media is not a tra...

Rodney Sieh Journalist on Trial. Fighting Corruption, Media Muzzling and a 5,000-year Prison Sentence in Liberia

Journalist on Trial is the captivating story of Rodney D. Sieh, one of Africa's finest investigative journalists. This is not just Rodney’s story but the story of virtually every journalist today in an era that has become consumed by daily tweets of a sitting US President and a 24-hour news cycle that has seen real news eclipsed by fake news. And where some leaders of the so-called “free world” are terrorizing journalists into submission.As publisher of Liberia's leading newspaper, FrontPageAfrica, Sieh’s explosive reports have led to arrests, prosecutions and investigations of prominent Liberian government officials. Sentenced to 5,000 years in imprisonment for a trumped-up libel charge in 2013, Sieh’s arrest and jailing triggered an international outcry and highlighted the continuing existence of criminal libel statutes in Africa where politicians use the courts to intimidate and silence the media from exposing their corruption. His sentence also brought pressure from journalists with The New York Times, BBC, Toronto Star, Globe & Mail and others in the global journalist rights community to win his release. Sieh’s work landed him among Reporters Without Borders' Information Heroes of 2014. Sieh fled the brutal civil war in his homeland in 1992 for exile in The Gambia. As a reporter there for both his uncle Kenneth Best’s Daily Observer newspaper and the British Broadcasting Corporation, his coverage about the deaths and disappearances that followed Yahya Jam...

Nerkez Opacin China.s Role in Afghanistan. A Capitalist Peace Approach

The time has come to finally solve the quagmire in Afghanistan. Many recent concerns have been raised regarding the situation. For example, one of the main concerns is whether there could be another way that could lead to Afghanistan's security. This study attempts to address Chinese role in contributing to Afghanistan's stability through economic means. China in many ways should start to be seen as a potential factor that could lead to the stabilization of its own bordering region. Nowadays, many countries are rather afraid of Chinese policies and tend be rather cautious towards it. The solution for that would be that countries rather than being afraid of Chinese policy should take a more opportunistic approach, where China is seen as a country to benefit others. Chinese reluctance to be militarily involved in Afghanistan has presented huge criticisms towards its policy, mainly from the U.S.' point of view. China is even being considered as a 'free rider' in Afghanistan. Meaning that at the expense of others that try to contribute to a more secure Afghanistan, China is getting its economic benefits out of this country without taking too much care to its security. For the time being, it seems like a controversy where China wants to invest heavily into Afghanistan, but does not want to contribute to any military interventions for its security sake. The question that lies ahead is whether China has any interests in a secure Afghanistan and how far China is w...

IN A 24/7/365, SECOND-BY-SECOND NEWS ENVIRONMENT, SAVVY OPERATERS REALIZE THERE ARE NEW WAYS TO GENERATE MEDIA ATTENTION. The rules have changed. The traditional PR model—sticking closely to a preset script and campaign timeline—no longer works the way it used to. Public discourse now moves so fast and so dynamically that all it takes is a single afternoon to blast the wheels off someone’s laboriously crafted narrative. Enter newsjacking: the process by which you inject your ideas or angles into breaking news, in real-time, in order to generate media coverage for yourself or your business. It creates a level playing field—literally anyone can newsjack—but, that new level favors players who are observant, quick to react, and skilled at communicating.
