How news domestication of news may blur the conflict: Coverage of 2008 South Ossetia war in Ukraine
(National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, Ukraine)
ABSTRACT: While media coverage of the 2008 South Ossetia War in Ukraine has been explored a little, the domestication of it has not yet become an object of research. The concept of news domestication is relatively new and underdeveloped in Ukrainian media studies. Previous research of media coverage of the 2008 South Ossetia War was either limited to the period of the war or was devoted only to its press coverage. Current research intends to fill the gap in the study of media discourse in Ukraine and to present an insight in the 2008 South Ossetia War TV coverage and its domestication.
