Conflict representation theory/study This research project aims at unpacking conflict representations, therefore it is essential to understand the techniques and strategies implemented when representing conflict. Political leaders invest time and resources in in order to promote official frames to media (Gadi Wolfsfeld, Paul Frosh & Maurice T. Awabdy 2008:401). Galtung 1998, Manoff 1998 & Wolfsfeld 2004 cited by Wolfsfeld et al (2008:401) explains that the ways in which the news media represent conflicts “are also likely to have a significant influence on any subsequent attempts at conflict resolution”. Annelore Deprez and Karin Raeymaeckers (2010:92) explain that the “selection and construction of news items, the picture that we see of ‘the foreign’, is a filtered, distorted, manipulated, one-sided and simplified image”. Looking at the techniques used by the media one may understand how this statement is given substance.

Snowden is called a whistle-blower which is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as “a person who informs on a person or organization regarded as engaging in an unlawful or immoral activity”. Although this definition highlights the fact that he revealed the potentially unlawful and immoral activity conducted by the National Security Agency, some critics perceive Snowden to be a traitor and therefore thoroughly un-American. These recent events, such as the revealing of Mrs. Merkel 's phone tapping, have torn the world and started a never ending discussion: was Edward Snowden 's release of secret and/or classified information to the general public a betrayal on the state or a blessing to
ABSENCE OF MALICE: QUESTION 1 When it comes to the exposure of news stories and headlines addressing important situations in real life scenarios, the media, newspapers, and other social platforms are given a very wide range of freedom. Newspapers have the power to say what they want, how they want it as long at it is truthful and effective in everyday life. However with that certain power comes responsibility and the idea news should ideally be legal and ethical, and should stray away from misuse of liability and slander. This thought leads to the question of: Does this story have legal points and information? And in addition: Can this story be viewed as a truthful and ethical piece?
This is due to their profound influence, and financial power to establish new investments. On the other end, local civilians present the demographic group that usually assumes the most deprived position in the mix. As such, eminent domain is a practice that generates significant questioning of the moral compass and, and ethical foundations upon which the leadership of The United states is founded (Baude, p 34).

This aspect renders eminent domain a major causal aspect of legislation controversies, as eminent domain presents a profound basis for litigation, which affects peace, harmony and unity of the United States as country.
In return, they expect to say how you will do your job. This can lead to ethical problems for journalists. If you work for a government-owned news organization, then your government will be your employer. This could make it very difficult for you to report critically on things which the government is doing. Ministers will often put pressure on public service journalists to report things which are favorable to the government (even when they are not newsworthy) and not to report things which are unfavorable to the government.
This suggest that “the evilness of men, or their improper behaviour, leads to war” (Waltz, 2001, p.39). Waltz’s second image that he proposes is that the inner administration of the state component is essential for us to understand its tendency towards war. The image has two beliefs that state that for survival in central conflict or civil war, a state must endorse an entity that is homogenously unified. The third image that Waltz highlights the anarchy that exists in the international system. He proposes that as states have such interests that will all too often clash with the interest of other states, e.g.
Media coverage refers to the amount and quality of interest an event/issue gets on TV, radio, newspapers and the internet. The media is a ‘business of finding, constructing and selling “news”’, requiring ‘imme¬diacy and drama’ rather than precision (Kitzinger, 1996). Insight into media portrayal of issues requires study of this construction via a ‘highly interpretive and value-laden process’ based on ‘socially created collective universals and traditional understandings’ that frequently symbolize and strengthen stereotypes (Akhavan-Majid and Ramaprasad, 1998). It is thus essential for messages, in what is reported and commented, to incorporate not only what the reporter thinks should be incorporated, but also what others anticipate him to incorporate. It is significant hence, to comprehend the experience and situation on the other side of the fence, a nation in crisis, distressed and terrified.
