Over the last few decades, the link between media and nationalism has quickly developed from being rather an insignificant topic to one of the main and prominent issues in the field of media and communication studies. Developments in communication technology, particularly the satellite television and the World Wide Web, have fuelled hopes about the steady weakening of nation-states and national connection and the formation of an interconnected and unified worldwide community. Nevertheless, nation-states, nations, and nationalism are alive and despite (perhaps) because of the intense communication flow circumventing the national borders and challenging the national organization of things both from above and from below. Media and communication scholars are ill-equipped to account for the propagation of overt nationalist sentiments, and more explicitly for the role of media and communications in some of the changes. Billig’s (1995) claimed notion is that “banal nationalism” describes the role of the media in the shaping and construction of nationalism. Gerbner (1964) supported this argument that journalists who as members of certain in-group are unavoidable share same cultural values and beliefs with the national members—which also could influence their journalistic work. Gans (1979) found in his research that ethnocentric coverage are most present in coverage that when U.S. involved in certain international issues. Brooks (1999) also argued that likely U.S media “reflect nationalist themes in crisis situations in which there is a perceived threat to national interests or national security” (p.21).
