Framing media mergers in France and the United States
Unformatted Document Text:  Framing media mergers in France and the United States 16 RQ1 Will commercial frames occupy a majority of the coverage in both cases? RQ2 Will commercial frames have a more dominant position in American coverage than in French coverage? RQ3 Will commercial sources occupy a majority of the coverage in both cases? RQ4 Will commercial sources have a more dominant position in American coverage than in French coverage? RQ5 Will the proportion of merger coverage appearing in the business/financial section be higher in the American case? RQ6 Is the public interest frame a proxy for nationalist narratives? Method Text population The coverage of the AOLTW merger in four U.S. news outlets – Newsweek, Time, New York Times (NYT) and the San Francisco Chronicle (SFC), was analyzed and compared to the coverage of the VU merger by four French news outlets - Le Monde, Liberation, Le Point and Le Nouvel Observateur. The NYT was chosen because it extensively covers media business issues and for its semi-formal status as the newspaper of record on the East coast. The SFC was chosen for its proximity to “Silicon Valley”, the largest concentration of high tech industry in the U.S. Newsweek and Time were chosen because they have the highest circulation figures for American news magazines. Le Monde and Liberation, arguably two of the three most important daily newspapers in France (the other being Le Figaro) were chosen for their divergent political orientations.

The coverage of the AOLTW merger in four U.S. news outlets – Newsweek, Time, New
York Times (NYT) and the San Francisco Chronicle (SFC), was analyzed and compared
to the coverage of the VU merger by four French news outlets - Le Monde, Liberation,
Le Point and Le Nouvel Observateur.
The NYT was chosen because it extensively covers media business issues and for its
semi-formal status as the newspaper of record on the East coast. The SFC was chosen for
its proximity to “Silicon Valley”, the largest concentration of high tech industry in the
U.S. Newsweek and Time were chosen because they have the highest circulation figures
for American news magazines.
Le Monde and Liberation, arguably two of the three most important daily newspapers in
France (the other being Le Figaro) were chosen for their divergent political orientations.
