Description

A Violent World analyzes images on global CNN, Israeli IBA, and Palestinian PATV that contribute to how the current violence in the Middle East is framed. Nitzan Ben-Shaul draws from critical media theory and approaches out of cinema studies to examine how dominant ideologies are embedded in mainstream TV news. He focuses on the American elites' global ideology and the conflicting dominant national-peripheral ideologies of Israeli-Palestinian elites, and his in-depth study further offers a new model of analysis for contemporary television news.
