The empirical material confirms earlier scholarship illuminating the link between media, representation and power regarding the relationship between the West and “the rest”. The comparison of the Swedish and US located media with the Argentinean one reveals larger differences in how the events studied had been represented. Meanwhile criticism against the presidents is a central part of the representation of the problem in the media located in Europe and the US, this representation in the Argentinian media is not as prominent. Here the focus is more on the regional efforts to promote peace. (Less)
