Politics and Persuasion

Media Coverage of Zimbabwe's 2000 Election

by Ragnar Waldahl

This book opens with a full discussion of 'mediated politics' and of developments in the media in Zimbabwe since independence up until the present day. The author analyses in considerable depth the 2000 election, posing the central and habitual question, namely, whether it was free and fair, taking into consideration factors of political competition, political violence and intimidation. He outlines a political profile of Zimbabwe's media, and finally presents some reflections on political journalism in the Zimbabwean context. The research for this book was undertaken collaboratively between the Department of Media and Communication at the University of Oslo, and the Media Programme at the English Department at the University of Zimbabwe.
