Western And Russian Media Coverage Of The Ukrainian Crisis: An Emotional Commitment Or Bias?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

During an international conflict, even otherwise objective journalists frequently display a strong emotional commitment to their government’s stance in the crisis. This commitment may cloud rational judgment, turning journalism into propaganda. A journalist’s choice to abandon truth-seeking in favor of persuasion makes the journalist a party to the conflict and transforms a critical discussion, based on a cooperative approach, into a persuasion dialogue, based on an adversarial approach.
