Abstract:

This content analysis of New York Times coverage explores the evolution of journalistic framing of the "anti-globalization" movement from 1999, when thousands of protestors in Seattle disrupted a trade meeting, until the aftermath of the World Trade Center attacks in 2002. It finds that the 1999 demonstrations definitively put this movement on the newspaper's agenda and that over a three-year period movement visibility did not increase, use of official sources decreased slightly, and Seattle endured as a symbolic reference. While portrayals of the movement and its members shifted in complex ways, the traditional "protest paradigm" emphasizing violence and deviance persists; however, this analysis suggests that the movement was further mainstreamed-rather than newly marginalized-after September 11, 2001. The results suggest that coverage of dissent is driven more by news values such as novelty, violence, and local bias than by ideological, intellectual or professional learning curves among journalists.
