In a world in which advanced communication technologies have made the reporting of disasters and conflicts (also in the form of breaking news) a familiar and ‘normalised' activity, the information we present here about television news reporting of the 2003 war in Iraq has implications that go beyond this particular conflict.

Evaluation and Stance in War News functions as a tool kit for the critical evaluation of language in the news, both as raw data in need of interpretation and as carefully packaged products of ‘information management' in need of ‘unpacking'. The chapters offer an array of theoretical and empirical instruments for revealing, identifying, sifting, weighing and connecting patterns of language use that construct messages. These messages carry with them world views and value systems that can either create an ever wider divide or serve to build bridges between peoples and countries.
