“Health Care Reform” vs. “ObamaCare”: Partisan Framing of FOX, MSNBC, NYT, and WSJ

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



Abstract:

This study investigated how The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Fox News and MSNBC framed President Obama’s health care legislation in 2009-2010. By employing a framing analysis as a methodology, it was found that American mainstream media framed Obama’s health care proposal on a partisan and ideological basis. The WSJ and Fox News’s The O’Reilly Factor consistently mocked Obama’s health care plan as “Obamacare;” while the NYT and MSNBC’s Countdown with Kieth Olbermann praised it as “health care reform.” In particular, liberal media presented worldwide globalization as a rationale for supporting Obama’s proposal. In contrast, conservative media denigrated Obama’s proposal by underestimating the advantages of the universal health care systems of foreign countries (e.g., Canada and England). Both conservative and liberal media tried to defame those opponents who did not agree with their ideological point of view or causes. In essence, the news coverage of Obama’s proposals in 2009-2010 was a clash of partisan framing between the conservative and liberal media.
