Discussion and Conclusion
This chapter discusses the major findings in the news analysis results and contemplates the implications of the data collected in the interviews with journalists. Applying the Hierarchical Model by Shoemaker and Reese (1996), this part aims to draw a conclusion about the news production processes and, based on the results of the news framing analysis and the interpretation of the interviews conducted in this study to discuss in depth the core factors that influenced journalists’ news production practices and news frames in covering the Korean conflict in a sociocultural and political context in light of theoretical debates. Additionally, the Korean media and society through the eyes of foreign correspondents will be addressed in this conclusion.
