  • Product Description

“Objectivity” is the aim of every journalist who works in the media field. However, is “impartiality” of news reporting an attainable end? Different television channels rely on news agencies such as Reuters and the Associated Press to provide them with their coverage of world events. Television channels do not quote verbatim what these sources state, but they carry out certain modifications in order to express their own ideologies and points of view. Measuring “bias/objectivity”, the book compares news stories written by the three international news agencies of Agence France-Presse (AFP), Reuters and Associated Press Television News (APTN) with the Egyptian satellite channel Nile TV International (NTV) concerning events during the second Palestinian uprising. Using Critical Discourse Analysis as an approach, the book analyzes certain lexical and grammatical features found in the selected corpus. The book should be especially useful to students of Linguistics and Journalism or researchers in the fields of Media and Political discourse and news reporting.
