Abstract:

This multi-method study investigated how a key summit of the Council of the European Union was framed in national news in three European countries, and the effects of the news media coverage on support for the EU in general and of the enlargement of the EU in particular. A content analysis of 717 newspaper and television news stories in Britain, Germany, and the Netherlands showed that the summit was primarily framed in terms of political-institutional consequences and that the overall valence of the news was disadvantageous towards the EU and EU enlargement. An experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of the valence of television news. A sample of 207 participants was randomly assigned to news framing the consequences of the summit as either ‘advantageous’ or as ‘disadvantageous’. Participants exposed to disadvantageous news showed lower levels of general EU support and specific support for the EU enlargement and considered more negative than positive aspects of the enlargement than participants exposed to advantageous news.
