Embedding Journalists Part I: This article posed the question of if embedding journalists with military personnel in the Operations “Enduring Freedom”, “Desert Storm”, and “Iraqi Freedom” created news that was either more decontextualized or more favorable. The author mainly focused on how the effects of embedding create more personnel and episodic stories, create more positive stories about the military, and how decontextualized the print news becomes. Embedding journalists into war was not always a popular concept. The author states that the U.S. military took a huge first leap into adopting the strategy of embedding journalists in specific army units. One theory of why this decision was made is that the military wanted to create a slanted view of the war into more positive news coverage. The author explained that when journalists travel around with the same unit they become very close with those people especially since they are protecting them. This not only creates a favorable attitude toward the army but also a limited view of the whole war.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
