Essay from the year 2008 in the subject Communications - Media and Politics, Politic Communications, grade: 1,0, Stockholm University, language: English, abstract: 1IntroductionThe process of Globalization and new communication technologies such as television and internet provide advanced opportunities for the mass media to report about conflict and war in any remote part of the world beyond national borders. The public opinion and people’s perception of a conflict can be shaped by news coverage, in many cases imprinted by the relationship between the media and the political elite which is especially consistent in times of war (Hallin 1986, cited in Dimitrova and Strömbäck 2005: 406).
