The Geopolitics of Representation in Foreign News: Explaining Darfur

the_geopolitics_of_representation_in_foreign_newsBella Mody

This book reveals a great deal about who decides what is news, the different ways national media define a story, and what this means for the publics that consume the news.

Mody's starting point is that news about human abuse is a desirable end in itself, and an investment against future genocides. The analysis of how various media measured up to that standard in covering the crisis in Darfur is fascinating and, in some cases, alarming. The result is a must-read for anyone interested in international journalism.
