In this paper, we will present how academic research in medias studies deals with mainstream media coverage of armed conflicts. We will mainly focus on news through a discursive approach perspective in order to understand the way in which media discourse can virtually shape public opinion. This discursive approach to the media's construction of information on war events refutes the accepted but false idea that journalism is an impartial and neutral reporting activity whose sole purpose is to present facts to citizens. Before focusing on this specific approach, let us briefly look at the specificity of both the sociological and discursive approaches.
