  In medias res - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In media(s) res (Latin for "into the middle of things") is a literary technique where the narrative starts in the middle of the story instead of from its beginning (ab ovo or ab initio).
The characters, setting, and conflict are often introduced through a series of flashbacks or through characters relating past events to each other.
The terms in medias res and ab ovo (literally "from the egg") both come from the Roman poet Horace's Ars Poetica ("Art of Poetry", or "The Poetic Arts"), lines 147–148, where he describes his ideal for an epic poet:

For the time being, blatant media bias is still limited by old rules and old norms of behavior.

 Mass Media & Politics
Critics on the right accuse the mass media of possessing an inherent "liberal bias" while those on the left argue that the economic domination of mass media by large corporations systematically eliminates views incompatible with the interests of those corporations, the wealthy, and entrenched political interest groups.
The purpose of this course is to examine the influence of the mass media on political discourse, particularly in how media structures, media routines, and the professional practices of journalists and politicians interact to shape political and public decision-making.

 Harvard International Review: In Media Res
After the 1999 Moscow apartment bombings, some Russians began to perceive Chechen separatism as a threat to their security, a view that was reinforced by the October 2002 Moscow hostage crisis that resulted in dozens of civilian deaths.
Unfortunately, Russia's media stands little chance of maintaining its current level of autonomy in the near future.
Unless the trend is reversed, Putin's subtle campaign against free media could prove the single most significant obstacle to the success of Russia's experiment with democracy.

The media are not the main focus, but the show is brilliant, always timely and well-researched, and with terrific guests.

 Proper use of In Media Res... - RPGnet Forums
This evening I ran an installment in our UA chronicle that was the first time I, as a GM, have made use of In Media Res.
As a rule, I only use In Media Res as a spring board to start a campaign or a game session, much as popular television series use an action-oriented vignette to introduce a new episode (e.g., Smallville, Supernatural, etc).
To avoid 100% of the problems you're running into, don't connect the vignette to the action of the adventure you're currently running, but instead use it to showcase the last moments of the previous adventure and merely set the tone for the current one.
