Factsheet ‘Veterans & the Media’

Appreciation and perception are closely linked terms. Some veterans feel unappreciated or under-appreciated and also make reference to the media which, they say, sometimes treats them ‘unfairly’. When they say this, veterans are alluding to articles containing half-truths or which describe their former military deployment in an accusatory or critical tone. It is clear from research into the perception of veterans that such ‘veteran-hostile’ articles are not representative of the media’s view of veterans.
