While it is easy to paint an alarming picture of the rolling-news technology as a corporate- and technologically-driven global political agent, I want to point cautiously as well to its potential as a facilitating force in the emergence of a global democratic polity. Serving as a typology of CNN influence, these categories conceptualize the CNN effect as accelerant, as impediment, and as agenda-setting agency Livingston, First, when the CNN effect is conceptualized as an accelerant, the assumption is that the latest global communication technologies deprive diplomats of the luxury of time for careful deliberation.
Within the context of transnational satellite technologies, "real-time" journalism is the defining term that characterizes many journalistic practices subject to the principle of speed. This principle necessitates instant analysis and response. As Nicholas Burns, State Department spokesperson, states, "In our day, as events unfold half a world away, it is not unusual for CNN State Department correspondent Steve Hurst to ask me for a reaction before we've had a chance to receive a more detailed report from our embassy and consider carefully our options.
Here the concern is the public's emotional response to particular images e. The decision by the Clinton administration in to terminate the intervention in Somalia, some argue, was based on the public's reaction to such televised images see Seib, Finally, the most familiar way to conceptualize the CNN effect is to view it as an "agenda-setting" agency. Mohamed Sacirbey, Bosnian ambassador to the United Nations, once said: "If you look at how humanitarian relief is delivered in Bosnia you see that those areas where the TV cameras are most present are the ones that are the best fed, the ones that receive the most medicines.
While on the other hand, many of our people have starved and died of disease and shelling where there are no TV cameras" cited in Seib , p. It has been reported that the decision to intervene in Somalia in the first place was based on the press coverage of human misery. As Marlin Fitzwater, Bush's press secretary, confessed about the Somalia policy decision: "After the election, the media had the free time [to cover Somalia] and that was when the pressure started building up.
We heard it from every corner that something must be done. Finally, the pressure was too great. The president said, 'I just can't live with this for two months. When the images of starvation, anarchy, and human misery appear on television screens, television becomes the de facto "must-do-something" framework for policy-makers. Yet despite the obvious pressure of round-the-clock coverage as a complicating factor in the conduct of foreign policy, we cannot conclude that CNN's agenda-setting drives policy decisions.
To take the case of "humanitarian crises" e. Livingston has demonstrated, for example, that the majority of humanitarian operations are conducted without much media attention. Livingston and Eachus have argued that the decision to intervene in Somalia was based more on diplomatic and bureaucratic operations than press coverage.
These counter-examples suggest that in order to understand the political efficacy of CNN and the CNN effect thesis, we must examine the larger context of international global television news. A good point of departure for reconsidering the larger context of global television news is the agent most visible in the "CNN effect" debates, the American Cable News Network CNN itself. Much of what is meant by "the CNN effect" is an effort to articulate media-driven foreign policy. The reason that CNN, "the world's news leader," gets singled out is its dominance in the global news market.
It is available to more than million people all over the planet. CNN Group is hailed as one of the most profitable news and information operations Thussu, CNN's expansion into multiple networks, with a wholesale news service CNN Newsource that sells video news to more than broadcast entities around the world, has demonstrated the degree to which news business can be profitable. Truly "global" television news has to be conflict-driven or it will cease to exist as such.
What is particularly relevant to our argument is that such a development is to a large extent the result of the insatiable appetite rolling-news television channels have for content. Indeed MacGregor sees the shift in function from newsgathering to reporting live as a response to "the relentless demand of rolling-news" p.
Such a demand is met in other ways as well, the consideration of which leads us to the second striking characteristic of the rolling-news genre. Apart from repetition by way of recaps and summaries, rolling-news channels tend to fill their schedule with "talk" and "speculation" opinion, analysis, debate, talk shows, etc. The boundless commentary on a sex scandal e.
The standard argument in such a context is that entertainment is creeping into the news. But if we follow our argument to its logical conclusion we have to turn the argument around. That is to say, we have to conclude that the news industry is taking over the entertainment division of the networks. Baudrillard makes a distinction between the event e. That is to say, real events lose their identity once they are "encrusted" with "information" as real-time media events p.
Put another way, the event the Gulf War disappears in the endless speculation and interpretation by experts, analysts, and commentators the media event. Gerbner offers a similar argument in an essay titled "Persian Gulf War, the Movie" the "Movie" is what Baudrillard calls the simulacrum.
Gerbner argues, "Instant history is made when access to video-satellite-computer systems blankets the world in real time with selected images that provoke immediate reactions, influence the outcome, and then quick-freeze into received history" p. Making instant history "requires a total environment of actuality, images, talk shows, slogans, and other creative manifestations" p. In the next section of this article, I discuss the international political implications of the emergence of this genre.
I want to reflect on the political dangers and potentials of international rolling-news broadcasting in terms of this framework. Some of the more significant political implications of global television news may be examined by way of reflection on the idea of "global. Moreover, it tends to avoid the state as in nation-state and its role in a more contentious political realm.
Even a term such as "international community" is ideologically charged. Sorting out who belongs to this "community" and who is excluded from it e. Yet, the international media, and those whose interests they represent, always strive to construct "the global community" in their address. In this attempt to construct the "global community" lies the political dimension of the international media. In his research on the television coverage of the Reagan-Gorbachev Summits as global "media events," Hallin addresses the construction of "global community" by the international media.
The framework he finds most appropriate for applying to a divided and conflictual world is that of the public sphere. His analysis examines the possibility of the constitution of an "international public sphere. In this context, he wants to know if such global media events opened up an international public sphere. To the extent that the two "superpowers" engaged each other before the "court of world opinion," and engaged in a conversation with the world press, and to the extent that the journalists from both countries entered into a dialogue with each other, the "summits opened a semblance of an international public sphere" p.
The notion of the international public sphere, however, has its limitations. In order to address these limitations, Hallin breaks down the notion of global community into two views: the civil the people as the citizens of the of the world and the statist the states as the citizens of the world. He concludes that at the statist level, the participation in the "global dialogue" was "extremely uneven" given the fact that the views of many states were excluded from the dialogue. At the civic level, however, the media played a different role.
Earlier, I observed that "global" television is conflict-driven. The centrality of conflict tends to involve global television news in a statist view of the global community. If we take the case of the Persian Gulf War CNN's "defining moment" for example, the global media can hardly take any credit for contributing to a global dialogue or the constitution of an international public sphere. Quite the contrary, the research shows not only a lack of dialogue, but it also paints the global media as instrument of war and propaganda in the hands of those with the means to deploy them e.
The conflict in Kosovo, to take another example, follows the same path in privileging the views of a few e. This trend has been present in the post-Vietnam "low-intensity conflicts" in the Falklands, Grenada, and Panama as well. These cases alarmingly question the status of the press as instruments of dialogue and civic discourse and their role in a democratic transnational civil society. At the same there are some optimistic signs as well.
There are occasions when the international rolling-news television contributes to a civil view of the global community and in doing so it contributes to the constitution of an international public sphere. The continued international coverage of disasters and catastrophes e.
Additionally, in the absence of conflict and disasters, through the insatiable demand for content, albeit in the form of talk and speculation, the international rolling-news television cultivates interest in participation in matters of public concern. The televisualization of foreign policy issues and policy-making processes e. In this article I have focused on some of the issues raised by the debate on "the CNN effect. If a medium with a relentless appetite for content has the technological means to reach a truly global audience, then we have reasons for both optimistic and pessimistic views of the future.
The transnational broadcasting technologies may be used to promote the views and the interests of the powerful. Alternatively, they could be used to bring to the global audiences matters of international concern to promote dialogue. It is not the communication technologies but their deployment that can foster or shun democratic values. Notes and References. Livingston discusses the media as impediment category as a an "emotional inhibitor" and b a "threat to operational security.
For other statements and examples attesting to this issue see Neuman , Seib , and Livingston As the United States prepared a military strike against Iraq for failing to meet the demands of the UN's weapon inspection team, CNN, at the request of the White House, organized a "town hall meeting. Contrary to the White House's expectations, the audience of this "talk show" refused to ask polite questions and embarrassed the administration. While the program was deemed a "public relations fiasco," it was seen as a "bonanza" for CNN Bennet, The public participation in this case, while accidental, is nevertheless a democratic byproduct of the televisualization of foreign policy decision-making processes.
