Abstract:

In light of the fast pace of Internet adoption in China, an empirical analysis of SARS related information dissemination on the China Internet backbone would inform the Internet community of Internet content practices of the most populated country in the world. A content analysis examined the framing of Chinese news stories related to SARS from a commercial China-based web portal, a national newspaper and a regional newspaper. 727 news stories during the SARS outbreak were content analyzed for the presence of five previously identified news frames (Health Severity, Human Interest, Economic, Attribution of Responsibility, Denial) and for the type of cited sources (domestic and international). MANOVA analyses indicated that the national newspaper used the Health Severity frame more often than the regional newspaper. The China-based web portal used the Economic frame significantly more often than either newspapers. News articles posted on the China-based web portal also included significantly more international sources than either newspapers. Results are discussed in terms of the future of the Internet in China as a tool to mitigate the spread of infectious diseases through rapid information dissemination via the Internet.
