‘Independence, diversity and professional autonomy’
Evidence for negotiated and oppositional coverage
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter analyses evidence for negotiated and oppositional coverage. This is done in three ways: first, by examining critical coverage that emerged across specific subject areas; second, by describing patterns of coverage in particular media outlets; and third, by presenting time series data. The chapter examines the representation of civilian casualties, military casualties and humanitarian operations across both television and press. It considers specific media outlets, starting with an examination of Channel 4 News which departed from the pattern set by other television news programmes in adopting a largely negotiated stance in its coverage of the war. The influence of professional autonomy on reporting is clearly indicated in the coverage provided by Channel 4 News. The chapter explores authors evidence, which included the emergence of an unprecedented and surprisingly vociferous anti-war press and differential use of visuals.
