The media in many countries has actively played down their countries role in Yemen’s civil war
As the civil war now features a Saudi-lead coalition funded by governments such as the US and the UK, coverage in these regions has been scant. This coalitions tactics of large scale indiscriminate bombing of civilian areas is arguably worse than what have been seen in Syria or Iraq. At such a touch and go time where trust in the government is low in both Trump-era America and Brexit-era Britain, anything that could possibly cause the reader to question their countries relationship to a close ally could be seen as disastrous. Therefore the news media focuses on stories that will not undermine the status quo as much, or cause further anger towards their governments.
The media have been historically the ones to question the government and big businesses, but as the media have become such a global corporate entity itself, its role has shifted to a much more self serving one, and its relationship to big businesses and government figures has changed the type of content and the amount of certain content that they are publishing.
