Friction and Conflict: Some Case-Studies

  • Eva Etzioni-Halevy


This book’s main thesis is that ambiguities of rules and norms have made it possible for politicians to promote their interests by applying pressures on broadcasting, that these ambiguities have also enabled some broadcasters to promote their interests by resisting pressures, and that this has resulted in friction and conflict. Ambiguities, pressures and resistance, have been documented before, but friction and conflict have only been alluded to intermittently. In this chapter four cases of conflict are described and analysed.
