Summary
This journalism master's project includes a professional work component and a research component. The professional work component details the author's experiences working at ABC News in Washington, D.C. During that time, the author produced webcasts, saw the inner workings of Nightline and produced elements for a Sunday morning political show. Includes field notes and examples of work. In the research component the author looks at "one specific theory and its use by the media to explain why the president of the United States entered into two conflicts." (p. 4) The theory, called "the diversionary theory of war ... contends that public opinion serves as the foundation for the president's decision to enter into conflict." (p. 5) "It is suggested President Clinton attempted to divert attention from the domestic crisis of low popularity standings caused by his sex scandal with Monica S. Lewinsky, ... by ordering the bombing of targets in Afghanistan, Sudan and Iraq." (p. 6) "By demonstrating that public opinion is used in the determination of foreign policy, a relationship forms among the media, the public and the president as the media influence public opinion about the president and report the results of public opinion concerning the president." (p. 5) Includes a literature review
