Pockets of resistance

British news media, war and theory in the 2003 invasion of Iraq

Piers Robinson, Peter Goddard, Katy Parry, Craig Murray, and Philip M. Taylor

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Considers the 2003 invasion of Iraq, a compelling case with valuable lessons for students of war and the media Drawing upon a uniquely detailed and rich content and framing analysis of television and press coverage, and on interviews with some of the journalists involved, provides an authoritative assessment of how British news media reported the invasion
  • Analyses the theoretical implications of this case for our underastanding of wartime media-state relations Debunks political claims of anti-war media bias, and portrays media-state relations in a more nuanced fashion than in most existing accounts in the field, offering a grounded understanding of how and why media report war in the way that they do
