Chapter I – Media Choices Pietro de Perini 450153/LL 12 So the decision was hardly made. Newspapers are the basis of the research in both directions; government press briefings are generally considered as a good source for war terms. Frontline sourced reports, indeed are commonly studied to follow military operations and to show how new terms entered the common language. Sometimes the two fields are interchangeable. The better work made by newspapers in war coverage is not enough to explain this delicate choice. A question is still bound to be asked: why newspapers of all media? A first note is about the nature of newspapers. It is not totally correct to say that the research is based on newspapers, because for many reasons the material analysed comes from the electronic versions of international broadsheets and tabloids. The online version of ‘The Independent’ 4 is the first, main source while ‘The Times’, ‘The New York Times’, ‘The Daily Mirror’, ‘The Sun’, ‘The New York Post’, ‘The Washington Post’ and ‘USA Today’ 5 electronic versions (from now, under the definition of e-newspapers) have been of great help in confirming and enriching the material collected (for the differences between online and paper-based newspapers see Chapter 1.2). Many other web sites have had a role in the creation of this path but their presence is less massive and their contributions are noted along the text. In the end the best answer for the choice of newspapers could be this one: newspapers are more fact oriented than all the other media. The thesis research includes many references to the first stage of the war on terror. Since the new behaviour of the media is a subject that is still being discussed by many authoritative men of social sciences and linguistics as well as by journalists and experts in international journalism, the only way to find paper-based discussions and complete data relative to the subject is to go back to September 11 th and its aftermath.
