War 2.0: perception of war by a media saturated society 292

Merkulov A., St. Petersburg State University of Economics and Finance, St.Petersburg, Russia
Abstract
Electronic mass media changed the way we perceive world events including military conflicts. In the 60–70-s television conveyed the horrors of Vietnam war to an ordinary American livingroom. Army was quick to learn a lesson so, for the time being, military conflicts began to be orchestrated as a television show where good defeats evil in a bloodless fight. The advent of the age of Web 2.0 and diffusion of digital technologies have made it impossible to control media coverage.

Keywords: war, Baudrillard, Web 2.0, Internet, Media Studies, Gulf War, Information Environment.

Column: Philosophy
