The Russian Federation in Global Knowledge WarfareRussia’s Strategic Blame Narratives: Comparative Analysis of Domestic and International Media Coverage About 5G

The Russian Federation in Global Knowledge Warfare: Russia’s Strategic Blame Narratives:... [In this chapter, we analyse discourses about 5G mobile technology in the context of US–China relations in major media outlets financed by the Russian government: Anglophone RT and Sputnik, and Russophone Perviy Kanal, NTV and ITAR-TASS. We combine strategic narrative theory and discourse analysis to study Russia’s media coverage in terms of strategic blame narratives about the development of 5G cellular networks in NATO countries. The aims of strategic blame narratives are to achieve a shift in the status of actors to undermine the opposing actor’s reputation and to create alliances. Our framework helps to reveal how 5G-related threats are framed, how the main actors (USA, China, NATO, EU) are depicted and how various articulations of blame are strategically used in Kremlin-backed media.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[In this chapter, we analyse discourses about 5G mobile technology in the context of US–China relations in major media outlets financed by the Russian government: Anglophone RT and Sputnik, and Russophone Perviy Kanal, NTV and ITAR-TASS. We combine strategic narrative theory and discourse analysis to study Russia’s media coverage in terms of strategic blame narratives about the development of 5G cellular networks in NATO countries. The aims of strategic blame narratives are to achieve a shift in the status of actors to undermine the opposing actor’s reputation and to create alliances. Our framework helps to reveal how 5G-related threats are framed, how the main actors (USA, China, NATO, EU) are depicted and how various articulations of blame are strategically used in Kremlin-backed media.]
