Abstract:This study analyzes visual patterns and strategies used within two sets of documents on the weapons and forces of the Iraq conflict, published online by the CNN (1998) and BBC (2003) respectively to accompany news coverage of the war. Using a functional approach to image analysis and multimodality and referring to Social Semiotics as an overall theoretical approach, all of the illustrations contained within these documents are analyzed, noting patterns of Representational, Orientational and Organizational meanings, and discussing their possible ideological antecedents. A variety of strategies used by BBC and CNN to distance the viewers (users) of these documents from suffering and violence, align them with the Coalition's position in the conduct of war, and present aesthetically-appealing images of Coalition forces. The roles of narrative structures, perspective, coding orientations, and relations between images and articles which they accompany are shown to be of particular importance in producing these portrayals and supporting an ideological position which favours the Coalition's interests.
