"Secret" casualties: Images of injury and death in the iraq war across media platforms

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 23 (1):36 – 50 (2008)
This study examined more than 2,500 war images from U.S. television news, newspapers, news magazines, and online news sites during the first five weeks of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 and found that only 10% showed injury or death. The paper analyzes which media platforms were most willing to show casualties and offers insights on when journalists should use gruesome war images or keep them secret.
