The Israeli-Hezbollah War of 2006: The Media as a Weapon in Asymmetrical Conflict

30 04 2007

Abstract:
Based on content analysis of global media and interviews with many diplomats and journalists, this paper describes the trajectory of the media from objective observer to fiery advocate, becoming in fact a weapon of modern warfare. The paper also shows how an open society, Israel, is victimized by its own openness and how a closed sect, Hezbollah, can retain almost total control of the daily message of journalism and propaganda. From Harvard University – John F. Kennedy School of Government by Marvin Kalb
