Abstract:

This essay examines the ways that popular American news magazines, such as Time, Newsweek, and U.S. News & World Report, use specific types of narratives to cover notable crises. These narratives unfold in predictable patterns regardless of the specific crisis. Two positions are taken. First, using Fisher’s discussion of the narrative paradigm as a foundation, the rhetorical implications of narrative use in meaning formation are established. Second, using open coding methodology, it is proposed that there exists evident types of narratives during crisis coverage and that these narrative types form patterns regardless of the specific crisis being covered. Following the discussions of narrative as tools for meaning formation, Fisher’s narrative paradigm, the data and methodology section lays out the procedure by which narratives were coded and identified. The essay concludes with descriptions and examples of the narrative types and charts displaying the results of the open coding process.
