International News Coverage of the Korean Conflict

  • Miri Moon


This chapter presents the findings concerning what frames were prominent in the sampled news data. First, the frequency of news articles and the narrative analysis of the news coverage of the incident in national and international news outlets will be examined. The combined size of all related news texts is an important element in news framing analysis, and it is significant to interpret the media representation of the conflict by analyzing the employed news frames. In addition, this chapter analyzes the dominant news sources used in news articles since a news source is an effective element in news framing analysis. Moreover, to examine the international news flow, I attempted to determine the best way to visibly track the news flow and to compare and contrast the national and international news texts, together with the time that they were reported.
