Journalism in Democracies During Times of War: Examining the Role of Indian and US Media
AbstractThis paper examines the larger issue of how a ‘free’ media performs during times of war with particular reference to US and India using case studies. It focuses on ‘national security’ becoming a major pivot around which the media discourse is shaped. How the media practices ‘patriotic’ self-censorship and how governments stoke this ‘patriotic’ tendency to get support for their own agenda. [CCMG Working paper].
