INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM AND TELEVISION CHANNELS: OPERATION AND REGULATION OF BBC AND CNN DURING COVERAGE OF 9/11 AND 26/11 PART II

6.0. HYPOTHESIS-

The balance to be struck is between the citizen’s right to reliable neutral information and faith in public authorities who may have legitimate national security reasons for withholding information, but who might also misinform or attempt to spin their policies and performances for personal or partisan gain. Numerous studies suggest the US media have been too uncritical in their coverage of the Bush Administration’s policies implemented in response to the events of…

INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM AND TELEVISION CHANNELS: OPERATION AND REGULATION OF BBC AND CNN DURING COVERAGE OF 9/11 AND 26/11 PART I

ABSTRACT–

“Terrorism” is a term that cannot be given a stable definition. Or rather, it can, but to do so forestalls any attempt to examine the major feature of its relation to television in the contemporary world. As the central public arena for organizing ways of picturing and talking about social and political life, TV plays a pivotal role in the contest between competing definitions, accounts and explanations of terrorism.

In proposed research which is divided is divided in…

IS IT IMPORTANT TO LIVE IN A DEMOCRACY?

Is it really important to live in a democracy? This has been a question that crosses most minds of the people concerned with defining international relations at one point in life. It once struck my mind of the possibility of living in a dictatorial government in this century!! The thought lingered in my mind which prompted me to dig deeper into democracy.

On Democracy: Surpassing Borderlines

  • On Democracy: Surpassing Borderlines



I never had the chance to live in a non-democratic society. Back in the 2010's election, my eight year old self would be found singing along to the rhythm of candidatorial advertisement jingles. If somebody would ask me about my government preference way back, I would have questioned why our country has a Democratic type of government. Why not a monarchial one? With princesses, big gowns, and horses. I was very…

Democracy For a Prosperous Nation

Four a.m. Seated in front of the computer. I am just from bed, where I had been tossing and turning for hours, looking for sleep that was seriously evading me like the plague. This is not the first time. I should honestly sit it down and have a mature conversation. We can’t go into the new year with this dispute still ongoing. Anyway, maybe I should thank sleep for playing so hard to get because now, here I am, writing. Here I am sharing what’s on my mind with you, hoping that you…

Why is Democracy Important?

#essaycontest2018

 

Democracy is a system of governance where a respected rule of law exists which explicitly defines the role of not only the citizens in which it governs, but the role of civil servants such the president, senators, etc. Democracy encourages individuals' rights and citizen engagement (i.e., voting, opinions). A democracy has a functioning bureaucracy and views no one as above the…

The Crack-Up: The 1919 Race Riots & the Crucible of Chicago, with Adam Green

During the "Red Summer" of 1919 dozens of race riots flared up across the U.S., but the anti-African American violence in Chicago stood out because of scale and social and political significance. University of Chicago's Professor Adam Green details the causes, the tragic events, and the aftermath in this riveting discussion. How did the riot affect the city's development for decades to come? How does it tie into questions about democracy and the end of World War I?

Ethics & International Affairs Volume 33.3 (Fall 2019)

The highlight of the Fall 2019 issue of "Ethics & International Affairs" is a roundtable on "Economic Sanctions and Their Consequences." Other topics include human rights and conflict resolution, Afghan attitudes toward civilian wartime harm, the role of supererogation on the battlefield, and the ethics of not-so-civil resistance.

The Climate Reality Project & Environmental Activism, with Brian Mateo

Ahead of the Climate Strike rallies on September 20, Bard College's Brian Mateo discusses the Climate Reality Project, founded by Vice President Al Gore, and how it has informed his work regarding environmental activism and education.
