The Human Journalist

Author: William James Willis
Publisher: Greenwood Publishing Group
ISBN: 0275972836
Release Date: 2003
Genre: Business & Economics

Willis examines the many orientations and perspectives of reporters that gather and present the news of the day. Debunking the notion that there are limited perspectives journalists may use, Willis examines up to 15 different orientations that reporters bring to their work. These perspectives run the gamut, from the traditional approach of distancing oneself completely from events and people involved to becoming part of the story's fabric to ascertain the story's true essence. Willis also suggests that, for many stories, it is wholly appropriate for journalists to feel what a non-professional would experience at such an event, and to allow those emotions to fuel the reporting and writing of the story. Several examples are discussed in detail, including the coverage of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995, and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Daring to Feel

Author: Jody Santos
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield
ISBN: 073912529X
Release Date: 2009
Genre: Social Science

Like social scientists, reporters are expected to be immune to, and even aloof from, the pain and suffering they chronicle. Daring to Feel: Violence, the News Media, and Their Emotions challenges this journalistic mandate, particularly as it pertains to the emotional topic of violence. Interviewing journalists who have covered some of the worst tragedies in our nation's history, Jody Santos shows what happens when the news media dare to feel.

Genre: Mass media and war

Das Visuelle hat seit jeher das Kriegs- und Konfliktgeschehen begleitet. Dabei wird Bildern häufig eine instrumentelle Rolle zugeschrieben. Ihnen wird unterstellt, in Form von visueller Kriegspropaganda den Krieg geschürt, unterstützt und verlängert zu haben. Zugleich ist die Bildkommunikation aber auch aus dem Pazifismus nicht wegzudenken. Dieses Buch beschäftigt sich mit visueller Kriegsberichterstattung vor, während und nach Kriegen, wobei der Schwerpunkt auf der Gegenwart - insbesondere dem Irakkrieg - liegt. Dabei werden Antworten auf zahlreiche Fragen erarbeitet: Welche Berichterstattungsmuster und -routinen zeichnen sich ab? Welche Beweiskraft besitzen Bilder? Wie hat sich die Funktion der Bilder in der Auseinandersetzung mit dem Krieg gewandelt? Wie sind die Propagandaapparate der kriegführenden Parteien strukturiert und welche Bedeutung haben die Bildmedien innerhalb der bellizistischen Strategien? Kann es eine Kommunikations- und Medienethik im Kontext von Kriegen geben? Welche Gefahren und Faszinationen gehen von den Bildern des Schreckens aus? Insgesamt liefert der Band einen breiten Überblick über Funktionen, Strukturen und Wirkungen von Bildkommunikation in Krisen, Konflikten und insbesondere kriegerischen Kontexten.

Politische Emotionen

Author: Martha C. Nussbaum
Publisher: Suhrkamp Verlag
ISBN: 9783518737422
Release Date: 2014-10-06
Genre: Philosophy

Wie viel Gefühl verträgt eine Gesellschaft, die nach Gerechtigkeit strebt? Nicht viel, könnte man meinen und auf die Gefahren politischer Instrumentalisierung von Ängsten und Ressentiments verweisen. Emotionen, so eine verbreitete Ansicht, setzen das Denken außer Kraft und sollten deshalb keine Rolle spielen. Martha C. Nussbaum hingegen behauptet: um der Gerechtigkeit politisch zur Geltung zu verhelfen, bedarf es nicht nur eines klaren Verstandes, sondern auch einer positiv-emotionalen Bindung der Bürgerinnen und Bürger an die gemeinsame Sache. Manche sprechen von Hingabe, Nussbaum nennt es Liebe. Sie zeigt, welche Ausdrucksformen diese und verwandte politische Emotionen annehmen können und wie sie sich kultivieren lassen.
