eng 2006 Kempf, Wilhelm Kempf, Wilhelm application/pdf 2011-03-25T09:17:50Z 2011-03-25T09:17:50Z terms-of-use Acceptance and impact of de-escalation-oriented conflict coverage War coverage has a strong bias towards promoting conflict escalation, and though less pronounced this bias often survives in post-war coverage as well. Even after wars end, only a few journalists frame conflict in a strongly de-escalation-oriented way. Do they have a chance to reach the public? Will their audience regard their reports as more or less balanced and unbiased? Will their reports influence their audience s mental models of the conflict? Or will the audience cling to its prejudices and reject news articles that are not consistent with the enemy images spread by the mainstream media?<br />The present paper investigates these questions in the context of a series of experimental studies which measure audience responses to escalation- and de-escalation-oriented news articles on (1) the Yugoslavian conflict after the fall of Milosevic and (2) the War on Terror.<br />The results of the studies show that de-escalation-oriented news articles were accepted by audiences and resulted in less polarized mental models of the events.
