Recent Constructions of Masculinity and the Emotionally Expressive Men of Jane Austen Film Adaptations, 1995 to 2005 examines the reconstructions filmmakers have performed on male characters in five Jane Austen motion picture and miniseries adaptatio ns. It contrasts these representations with the characters in Austen’s source novels and in earlier adaptations produced for British television. The essay also considers the role of male compassion, nurturing and egalitarianism in the recent adaptations. The Iraq War’s Embedded Media Program: Media Management and Manipulation examines the US rationale for journalist embedding at the start of the 2003 Iraq War and the effect on the journalists’ reportage. Researchers found embedded journalists tended to produce material that was contextually deficient and pro-military compared with the reportage of non-embedded journalists. Possible explanations include social penetration, patriotism and the financial interests of US media corporations
