A Voilent World: TV News Images of Middle Eastern Terror and War (Critical Media Studies) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Images are the core of television news, particularly in the coverage of terror events and war, where pictures often overwhelm the verbal commentary. A Violent World analyzes images on global CNN, Israeli IBA, and Palestinian PATV that contribute heavily to how the current violence in the Middle East is framed. Nitzan Ben-Shaul draws from critical media theory, and from qualitative and aesthetic approaches out of cinema studies, to examine how dominant ideologies are embedded in mainstream TV news. Specifically, he focuses on the American elites' global ideology and the conflicting dominant national-peripheral ideologies of Israeli-Palestinian elites. His in-depth study, of particular interest to scholars of Middle East studies and international communication, further offers a new model of analysis for contemporary television news.

Book News Annotation:

This is a paperbound reprint of a 2006 book. Ben-Shaul (film and television, Tel Aviv U., Israel) analyzes how the different ideological frames of the core elites of the United States and the dependent periphery national elites of Israel and the Palestinian National Authority are embedded in how respective their mainstream television news outlets report on violence linked to the direct core-periphery conflict between the US and al Qaeda and the indirect one of the al Aqsa Intifada. In the interest of showing how dominant ideologies are embedded in television coverage of terrorist attacks and "reciprocal constitutional violence," he also proposes a critical model for analyzing the discursive strategies of the audiovisual elements of television news, which often tend to overwhelm verbal commentary.
