The author shows how journalists abandon their watchdog role, however unintentionally, to support 'our side', for example in the 1991 Gulf War. This book demonstrates how readers and viewers are also implicated by virtue of their expectations and their inability to decode the press critically. Examples are provided of how conflict may be otherwise depicted, for example by artists and front-line participants, as well as how media-literate readers can learn to read between the lines.
