Abstract
This study presents results from a content analysis of newspaper coverage of protests
movements by Wisconsin newspapers over a period of four decades (1960 to 1999). Analysis
focused on differences and similarities in issues protested across time and location, while
comparing regional and local papers. Included in these examinations are the topics of protests,
the range of protest targets, and differences in coverage across newspapers with regard to
location of protest as an intervening variable. In the process, this study brings past research on
the “protest paradigm” under the purview of historical analysis by examining trends over time
using a Midwestern state as a case study.
