Abstract:

In a world in which advanced communication technologies have made the
reporting of disasters and conflicts (also in the form of breaking news) a
familiar and 'normalised' activity, the information we present here about
television news reporting of the 2003 war in Iraq has implications that go
beyond this particular conflict.

Evaluation and Stance in War News functions as a tool kit for the critical
evaluation of language in the news, both as raw data in need of
interpretation and as carefully packaged products of 'information
management' in need of 'unpacking'. The chapters offer an array of
theoretical and empirical instruments for revealing, identifying, sifting,
weighing and connecting patterns of language use that construct messages.
These messages carry with them world views and value systems that can
either create an ever wider divide or serve to build bridges between
peoples and countries.

"For all those interested in media coverage of the Iraq war this is a most
important book. Rich in evidence, analysis and careful argument, it opens
up new and better ways of studying the perennial questions of neutrality,
bias, and editorializing in television news."
- Dr Martin Montgomery, University of Strathclyde, UK
