Abstract: Comment threads online have been an ongoing source of both promise and disappointment, as the potentially enlarged public sphere often devolves into flame wars. YouTube represents an interesting case of commentary, as content from sources with a varieties of perspectives and opinion centers are presented together on the same platform while commenters, posting under user names, can maintain disinhibiting anonymity. One hotly debated topic is politics. This study is a case study of commentary on four informational channels’ videos about the birther debate that surrounded Senator then President Barack Obama. Sentiment analysis of YouTube commentary suggested that while positive/negative sentiment appeared balanced overall, the strength of opinion varied across sources, suggesting that perhaps types of outlets are more and less likely to draw inflammatory debate in the comments.

Abstract: Public health officials have continually urged journalists and other members of the news media to ease off health frames that focus on individuals and to promote broader societal frames instead. While some scholarly research has reinforced these pleas, none have examined the interplay between frames of health news coverage and resulting public comments. The current online environment invites such an analysis, allowing news organizations to post articles online and the public to comment on those articles. Using a content analysis, this study reveals thematic frames in online health stories may lead to thematic responses, but episodic stories may not lead to episodic comments. Further, the findings reveal other textual factors—gain and loss frames and mobilizing information—that may be driving the volume and frames of user comments to health stories online.

Abstract: In order to understand how online commenters can establish normative expectations of the goals of journalism and participatory public discourse, the researchers conducted a qualitative textual analysis of online comments in response to the Newtown shooting. The analysis elucidated expectations of how the media should report important political and social events and how commenters should effectively engage with one another in discourse. The analysis showed that American and French online commenters expect journalists to follow through with traditional journalistic norms of fully reporting information, setting the issue agenda, and refraining from sensationalizing. Commenters expect fellow participants in discourse to ascribe to traditional journalistic norms of being accurate and transparent with their sources, however, there was also an expectation that commenters should behave in accordance with traditional social norms of being respectful, tolerant, and engaging in intelligent commentary.

Abstract: As news commenting has evolved as a participatory tool and journalists have developed traditional practices for moderation, there are increasing questions about how to promote quality spaces for news discourse. Using gatekeeping theory, this study analyzes in-depth interviews with 13 news comment moderators to understand how these individuals establish moderation routines and define their professional role. This provides new insight into the journalist-audience relationship and the development of new media practices for online news production.
Keywords: gatekeeping, comments, comment moderation
Method: qualitative
