The interaction between the news media and the state during international crises, examples of which include traditional wars, 'uncivil wars' and the 'war on terror'.
Why do the media report some international crises and not others? And why do they report them the way they do? Do the media provide a distorted picture of wars, terrorism, protest and environmental disasters?
