Media Framing and Terrorism: Analysis of frames in news reports of London bombings and Mumbai attacks

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



Abstract:

This study explores the manner in which terrorist activities are framed differently in different media systems to deduce what influences the media to frame these attacks in a particular manner. The study further investigates the differences between the frames – geographical, regional, and religious - that are used by countries such as the United States and United Kingdom, with their similar experiences with and policies for terrorism, and India, a country that has been dealing with sporadic terrorist attacks since its independence. The qualitative textual analysis of articles filed in three news portals, timesofindia.com, nytimes.com and bbc.co.uk regarding two terrorist attacks – July 7, 2005 London bombings and November 26, 2008 Mumbai attacks - revealed that frames used by the media for portraying terrorist activities are subject to influences from the manner in which terrorism is perceived and the terrorism policies employed by the host country.
