Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to identify the sources used by national and local television news outlets in the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill coverage and how those sources contributed to the frames and functions of the media in crisis. The study consisted of a content analysis of the sourcing from weeks one and six of the disaster. Findings show national press did a better job of serving the management role, but also operated in a responsibility frame and relied heavily on political analysts. Local outlets relied more on state officials and scientists. National versus local differences in sourcing (experts, victims, race) and frames are discussed in terms of their individual missions and responsibilities to their publics during a crisis situation.
