Unformatted Document Text:  Portrayal of the Iraqi Kurdistan Region in U.S. Newspapers: 2009 Abstract The Iraqi Kurdistan region claims that it is the closest ally of the United States and supports its agenda in the Middle East. Therefore, to know what issues and sources the U.S. mainstream newspapers use to portray the region is essential. It’s important for the Kurdish people to know whether the coverage of the U.S. newspapers about Kurdistan region is positive or negative. It’s also important for the American Academic field to know how the U.S. foreign policies reflect in the U.S. newspapers’ coverage of Kurdistan. A content analysis of three U.S. newspapers in 2009 is conducted. Besides the fact that 70 percent of the coverage is neutral about the Kurdistan region, the study finds that the coverage reflected the U.S. agenda and policies in Iraq. The issues- such as elections, Kurdish-Arab political strife and ethnic strife over lands- the newspapers covered about Kurdistan also reflect the U.S. concerns over Iraq. The newspapers used sources from the ruling parties in Kurdistan and to some extent ignored the public. Portrayal of the Iraqi Kurdistan Region in U.S. Newspapers

The Iraqi Kurdistan region claims that it is the closest ally of the United States and 
supports its agenda in the Middle East. Therefore, to know what issues and sources 
the U.S. mainstream newspapers use to portray the region is essential.  It’s important 
for the Kurdish people to know whether the coverage of the U.S. newspapers about 
Kurdistan region is positive or negative.  It’s also important for the American 
Academic field to know how the U.S. foreign policies reflect in the U.S. newspapers’ 
coverage of Kurdistan. A content analysis of three U.S. newspapers in 2009 is 
conducted. Besides the fact that 70 percent of the coverage is neutral about the 
Kurdistan region, the study finds that the coverage reflected the U.S. agenda and 
policies in Iraq. The issues- such as elections, Kurdish-Arab political strife and ethnic 
strife over lands- the newspapers covered about Kurdistan also reflect the U.S. 
concerns over Iraq. The newspapers used sources from the ruling parties in Kurdistan 
and to some extent ignored the public.
