ABSTRACT
The United States has engaged in military conflicts both honorable and questionable. Journalists have traveled to the front lines to produce stories and pictures both supportive and critical. A content analysis of images published in three U.S. newspapers during the start of the 1991 and 2003 wars with Iraq reveals that the military probably received the type of coverage it hoped for when it initiated the embedding program.
