Folterszenen werden zunehmend Bestandteil US-amerikanischer Kriegs- und Terrorismusfilme. Opfer und Täter werden entweder US-amerikanisch oder islamisch-arabisch markiert. Maja Bächler zeigt am Beispiel von acht Filmen (von »The Little Drummer Girl« bis »Three Kings« und »Syriana«), wie dabei Helden, Feindbilder und Opfer konstruiert werden. Der verletzbare US-Held im Film symbolisiert dabei die verletzliche Nation bzw. das angreifbare Territorium, ein Mythos, der seit den Anschlägen vom 11. September 2001 immer mehr zu einem Bestandteil nationaler Narrative wird. So wird im Film der »Ausnahmezustand« inszeniert, durch den eine Bindung der Bevölkerung an eine imperiale Mission erfolgt. Sogar in kritischen Filmen wird Hollywood dadurch zu einem wichtigen Faktor für die Selbstdarstellung und Selbstlegitimation der USA als imperialem Akteur.

Journalism is the branch of mass communications that provides large numbers of people with the knowledge they need to help them make good decisions about issues currently affecting their personal and public lives. Journalism not only provides news but also presents interpretation, evaluation, and persuasion. Any discussion about journalism requires a common understanding of basic terms and concepts. By defining what journalism is, this book provides the answers to many questions and debates about the current state of the mass media: What is news? Is journalism concerned with more than news? What are the purposes of editorials? Is it good or bad to combine journalism and fiction? Is it possible to report the news objectively? How are public relations and advertising related to journalism? This coherent, general theory explores the function and roles of journalism vital to our personal and public well-being and offers valuable insight in areas affected by journalism such as politics, education, and the law.

Dooley explores the transformation of journalism, examining how journalists established occupational boundaries. She focuses on how many in society came to perceive an occupational group, inseparable from party politics early in the 19th century, as distant and independent of political parties by the end of the century. Today journalists are accepted as the citizenry's primary provider of political news and editorial opinion.

Throughout American history, the press has been incredibly adept at making the public aware. The history of the press in crisis situations is in many ways the story of public attitudes and the story of America. This book looks at the press over time and the way it has functioned in times of crisis. It considers press coverage of 13 events, spanning a time frame that includes the birth of the nation, its political, economic, and social struggles as a young country, and its civil war. It tells how a young agrarian society grew into an industrial giant, and how it changed from isolationist to a world power. It relates how this country coped with the growth of socialism, two world wars, civil unrest, and with the problem of world overpopulation. The American press has performed various functions throughout the years. The Colonial Press served as a vehicle of discussion, debate, and finally agitation and, in the process, may have defined itself and laid a groundwork for the press's future roles. The press has agitated, advocated, and persuaded. It has been duped, it has been unfair, and it has misled. This volume considers such concepts as advocacy journalism, a central theme of the chapters on abolitionists and David Duke, and social responsibility, a primary part of the chapter on Japanese-American internment. The press's attempt to lead public opinion is the focus of the chapters on the partisan press, the antebellum period, and the first Red Scare in 1919. The chapter on Joseph McCarthy looks at the concepts of objectivity and the use and misuse of pseudo news. The final chapter, on overpopulation, deals extensively with agenda setting.
