EXAMPLE INTRODUCTIONS AND CONCLUSIONS Q1 Discuss the portrayal of the media’s role in both ‘Welcome to Sarajevo’ and ‘No Man’s Land’. Consider in what ways they are shown as affecting the events of the war positively or negatively. In light of your research, how accurate is this portrayal? ESSAY 1 INTRODUCTION “The British nurse was picking her way through the mass of women and children squatting in the dust at the entrance to the field hospital of the refugee camp at Korem, Ethiopia. She was selecting which children could be still helped. She was choosing who could live and who would die. A television crew trailed behind her, moving its way among the starving. A television reporter approached with a mike an asked her how she felt about what she was doing. It was not a question she felt capable of answering. The look she gave to the camera came very far away.” This sentences that are taken from Michael Ignatieff’s book The Warrior’s Honor shows the media’s working conditions during a famine. (Ignatieff, 1998) Similarly, the media works in unusual situations where famines, wars, natural disasters tke place. The media are not autonomous and can’t remain totally detached from the real world. In extreme conditions they may become immune to the terrible things that they witness. The films No Man’s Land and Welcome to Sarajevo portray the negative aspects of the media in a way that is both accurate and true to life. CONCLUSION In conclusion, horrible predicaments like famines, natural disasters, wars are the extreme working conditions for the media. In these situations, media can’t behave autonomously because of the manipulations that restrict journalists. There is not an objective distance between the media and the socio- political world in fact the media integrate with war so in the sense that wars are partly what the media make them. Despite these interactions, in extreme conditions media spend so much time covering the tragedy that they no longer relate it, in a way they become accustomed to see death everywhere. Both the two films, No Man’s Land and Welcome to Sarajevo accurately portray the media by showing the negative effects of them on the war. ESSAY 2 INTRODUCTION Without question, one of the most important actors of a war is the media. The drama, uncertainty and emotion of the modern war fulfill media requirements for good news stories. Besides this, its technological advances have made the journalists in the conflict areas often before the emergency aid workers or multinational military forces such as UN. Moreover, the families of the soldiers and aid workers in the mission, the policy makers and aid agencies have all sought information about the conflict areas. Because of these reasons, media will inevitably cover the peacekeeping operations. The movies ‘Welcome to Sarajevo’ (Winterbottom 1997) and ‘No Man’s Land’ (Tanovic 2001) which are both about the Bosnian War, draws a picture that although, the role of the media is wars is inevitable and the journalists have a huge responsibility in this process, they usually have affected the events negatively.

    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.
