The Coverage of the Russian-Ukrainian Conflict by the Polish Media (2014-2015) Hardback
Part of the Studies in communication and politics series
In this book, the author examines the media coverage of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict by six Polish media outlets in 2014 and 2015.
Using content analysis and in-depth interviews, the author explores how cultural and historical factors, as well as the national security threat to Poland, affected the media image of the conflict.
Despite differences in editorial line, level of political parallelism and type of medium, the Polish media largely spoke with one voice.
Interviews with journalists uncover how they view their role in reporting on the conflict, and how national prejudices had an impact on their work.
The military and economic threat to Poland, resulting from Russia's actions, was the dominant tool of domestication used by the media to bring the dispute closer to the public.
