Abstract and Keywords

This chapter tries to determine who or what eventually decides the policy agenda in case of war, concluding which kinds of facts are the ones that are relevant to the process. It studies the framing of issues and the priming and setting of the agendas for public discussion, and notes that the public can be rather selective about the facts of war which it is ready to accept. The chapter also considers the impact of visual information and the role of media during times of war.
