Abstract:

The following paper studies the way in which media mergers in France and the United States are framed. This is done in order to ascertain whether media mergers, that are symptomatic of the growing concentration in the global media industries, are presented as purely commercial events or as events with civic repercussions. Content analysis of articles in the French press covering the Vivendi Universal merger in France and in the American press covering the AOL Time Warner merger in the U.S. was conducted. Results suggest that in both countries the respective mergers are mostly framed as economic events, thereby removing the event from the realm of political contention.

Framing media mergers in France and the United States 1 The existing literature on political communication in the United States delivers a harsh indictment of media institutions. The indictments come generally from two separate quarters. According to various studies journalists frequently resort to simplistic frames and scripts that distort popular conceptions of social issues such as welfare (Gilens 1999) and crime (Dixon and Linz 2000) usually to the detriment of racial minorities and other groups in society.
