The Medialization of War

Page history last edited by stephan 12 years, 2 months ago

This is Sylvia:

Realität - mediale Fiktionalisierung der Wirklichkeit

Medien als Instrument der Kriegsführung

Pressefreiheit ja - aber nur solange sie den politischen Zielen dient

--> cannot choose a favorite from the others, yet ;-)

 

 

This is Ana:

1. Bevölkerung wird um Wahrheit betrogen: Realität ≠ Wahrheit

2. Ein Krieg, zwei Fernseher: CNN vs. Al-Jazeera

3. Umgehung der Pressefreiheit leicht gemacht: embedded journalists

I like Sylvia’s "Medien als Instrument der Kriegsführung" best.

 

 

This is Stefan R. and I chose Adobhani's essay...

 

1. "Der Krieg im Irak - eine mediale Chronologie"

 

2. "Von 'Lügen' und der 'Wahrheit' - Al-Jazeera & CNN: Ost gegen West'"

 

3. "'Embedded Journalism' - Mittendrin statt nur dabei?"

 

I think "Realität - mediale Fiktionalisierung der Wirklichkeit" is Sylvia's best headline. "Ein Krieg, zwei Fernseher: CNN vs. Al-Jazeera" is Ana's best.

 

 

This is Miriam

 

1. Livestream Irak - eine "Daily Soap" mit unbekannten Folgen

2. Wahrheit gegen Wunschtraum: Al- Jazeera gegen CNN

3. Pressefreiheit ja - aber nur unsere Wahrheit ist die richtige

 

I like Sylvia's "Realität - mediale Fiktionalisierung der Wirklichkeit", Ana's "Umgehung der Pressefreiheit leicht gemacht: embedded journalists" and Stefan's "Vom 'Lügen' und der 'Wahrheit' - Al-Jazeera & CNN: Ost gegen West" best.

 

 

This is Marc:

1. Pro-War Bias in the Iraq War Coverage - Sein und Schein eines Krieges

2. Don't Believe Everything You See - Der mediale Krieg

3. Manipulating Truth - Das Ende der Pressefreiheit

 

I like Sylvia's "Realität - mediale Fiktionalisierung der Wirklichkeit", Ana's "Umgehung der Pressefreiheit leicht gemacht: embedded journalists", Stefan's "'Embedded Journalism' - Mittendrin statt nur dabei?" and Miriam's "Livestream Irak - eine "Daily Soap" mit unbekannten Folgen" best.

 

 

 

This is TobiasB and I picked Adobhani's essay.

 

1. Neutral media - fact or fiction?

2. Welcome to WAR live - you'll see everything we let you see!

3. Freedom of parrotting - what the military allows the media to report

 

I like Miriam's "Pressefreiheit ja - aber nur unsere Wahrheit ist die richtige" best.

 

 

Hey everybody, it's Alina. I chose the first text and these are my ideas:

 

  1. Media declares war on actuality
  2. West-East parallels – setting up a biased relaity
  3. War as real-life entertainment

 

I liked Stefan’s "'Embedded Journalism' - Mittendrin statt nur dabei?" the best!

 

 

This is Sasha, I chose the Militainment article:

 

1.  Embedded journalists bring us closer than ever - to what we're not sure!

2.  . . . and the Oscar goes to . . . the Pentagon!

3.  US department of defense buys Disney for undisclosed sum

 

 

Hi, this is Timo:

 

1. Embedded Journalism - Propaganda im 21. Jahrhundert

2. Radikal medial - Die Kriegsführung der USA

3. Maulkorb für die freie Presse - Welche Wahrheit hätten's denn gern?

 

My favourites are Sylvia's "Realität - mediale Fiktionalisierung der Wirklichkeit" and Stefan's "Embedded Journalism - Mittendrin statt nur dabei?"

 

 

Hi, this is Petra:

I choosed the Anderson Text:

1.) Militainment - wenn Krieg zum 'Fun-event' wird

2.) The iraq war: Warum schockieren, wenn man auch unterhalten kann?

3.) Traumfabrik Hollywood zu Gast im Irak

 

I like Miriams' Pressefreiheit ja - aber nur unsere Wahrheit ist die richtige best.

 

 

 

This is Sascha (notice the "c")

I chose Adobhani's essay:

1. Constructing Reality, Constructing Opinions - Letting The Media Do Our Thinking

2. War Sweet-and-Sour: CNN versus Al-Jazeera

3. The Media in Shakles - Whose Truth Is Out There?

I like Marc's "Manipulating Truth - Das Ende der Pressefreiheit."

 

Hi, this is Stephan,

  1.  History (and News) is written by the winner: The discrepancy between CNN's and Al-Jazeera's war coverage
  2. Looking over the soldiers (and journalists) shoulder: Embedded journalism and it's consequences to the freedom of press
  3. And the Oscar goes to.. G.W.Bush: How the Commander in Chief is presenting himself as an action-movie-hero

I really liked Stefan's "Embedded Journalism - Mittendrin statt nur dabei?"

This is Stef, I chose Adhobani’s text:
- Die Medienfront – CNN und Al-Jazeera oder: The media – art for war’s sake
- CNN oder: embedded journalism or cushioned journalism?
- Die Wahrheit im Krieg oder: Are CNN and Al-Jazeera two sides of the same coin?

As usually, I have a hard time making a choice, so here are my favourites ;) I like TobiasB’s “Freedom of parrotting - what the military allows the media to report”, Gregor’s “Battleground Iraq: Al Jazeera gives CNN a reality Check” and Sasha’s “…and the Oscar goes to . . . the Pentagon!”.

This is Marijana, and I chose the "Militainment"-text:
1. When war is no longer death, but entertainment.
2. It simply does not fit to our picture of war.
3. How you can make money out of the death of millions of Iraqis.
I like following best: . . . and the Oscar goes to . . . the Pentagon!

This is Natia:

1. "Es war Krieg und dabei stirbt die Wahrheit bekantlich zuerst" (Adobhani)

2. CNN - Effekt: Media Reality vs World Reality

3. Wirklichkeit der Medien - "Stimmte sie auch dem Krieg zu?"

I like: War as real-life entertainment & Pressefreiheit ja - aber nur unsere Wahrheit ist die richtige.

at 2:04 pm on May 8, 2008

This is Bjoern:

1.) Der Krieg hinter dem Krieg: CNN vs. Al-Jazeera.

2.) Soldaten führen die Schlacht, Medien den Krieg.

3.) Embedded journalism: Ich sehe was, was du nicht siehst.

I like Stefan´s "Embedded journalism: Mittendrin statt nur dabei?"

1. i declare war!- the reason the Iraq War started in the first place
2. 'i hereby swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. So help me God'. Matters of truth in the Iraq War coverage
3. Monkey Business- do you believe because you see?

I quite liked: 'The Media in Shakles - Whose Truth Is Out There?'

I liked best Timo's " Maulkorb für die freie Presse - Welche Wahrheit hätten's denn gern?"

I chose Robin Andersen's >>Militainment<<:

1. Quintessence Death or What We Forgot

2. Embedded Journalists - Pentagon's Lap Dogs

3. The Aesthetics of War

Three headlines for Abdobhani’s text:

1. Fictionalization: stepping away from reality
2. Media preaching war support & its consequences
3. Journalists between multiple „fronts“

My favorite is: „Pressefreiheit ja - aber nur unsere Wahrheit ist die richtige“

Thomas said

Here are my headlines for the text by Adbhani:

1. Reality Engineering / Opinion Engineering: The Iraq War, Session 1
2. Media going to war: CNN facing Al'Jazeera
3. Constructions of Truth

# Concerning the the headlines of miriam, is especially like the last one "Journalists between mutliple fronts", because I think presents best what the article is about
