1. Fontenot, Maria., Boyle, Kris. and Gallagher, Amanda. "Information Subsidies and Disaster Coverage: A Qualitative Content Analysis of Press Releases and Newspaper Coverage of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, May 22, 2008 Online <PDF>. 2019-10-20 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This study examined coverage of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in five newspapers based on themes introduced through government press releases. Specifically, it compared the newspaper coverage to the press releases and investigated the role of the releases as information subsidies in the coverage. The findings suggested that the releases were not used as information subsidies in the way the newspapers reported the disasters because there was no connection between information provided by press releases and stories covered by newspapers.

2. Fontenot, Maria. and Wigley, Shelley. "Breaking News Coverage: A Comparison of Sources Used in the Coverage of the Shootings at Virginia Tech and Tucson, Arizona" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Sheraton Phoenix Downtown, Phoenix, AZ, May 24, 2012 Online <PDF>. 2019-10-20 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: This study expands on previously published research into the role of citizen generated content plays in coverage of breaking news and discusses implications for journalists and news organizations. The study compares sources used by newspapers, broadcast news websites, and cable news websites in coverage of the shootings at Virginia Tech and the shootings in Tucson, Arizona. Using a content analysis of newspapers and the websites of cable and broadcast news networks, the authors explored the use of both official versus non-official sources and the use of citizen generated content during the coverage of the January 2011 shootings in Tucson, Arizona that injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and 12 others, and killed six people. Results revealed reporters were more likely to use non-official sources. Reporters also were more likely to use non-official technology sources, or citizen generated content, than official technology sources such as web-based news releases and statements.

3. ZAMORA, ROCIO. "Agenda-Setting Effects Related International Political Leadership Coverage on U.S. Media Coverage and Their Presidential Approval" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association 65th Annual Conference, Caribe Hilton, San Juan, Puerto Rico, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: Following second level of agenda-setting theory this paper examines the relation between the presidential approval, as a popularity measure, and media coverage in the context of international news flow. Based on three national public opinion pools from 19 international political leaders, we examined the effect of U.S. media coverage on the evolution of those leaders presidential approval. Contrary to what we expected, significant results showed that the more negative U.S. media coverage an international leader received, as a kind of reaction effect, the higher approval he/she scores in his own country, pointing to a reverse Agenda Setting effect in this specific context. Both, event-oriented variables and also contextual factors explained why some of the international leaders received more negative coverage than others.

4. Josey, Christopher. and Dixon, Travis. "The Obama Effect: A Content Analysis of How News Coverage of America’s First African American Presidential Family Affects Coverage of African Americans in News" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the BEA, Westgate Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, NV, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <>
Publication Type: General Paper Submission
Abstract: A content analysis of over one year’s worth of online news coverage was undertaken to assess the impact of the election of Barack Obama, America’s first Black President, on the overall portrayal of African Americans in news. The top twenty news websites were identified based upon web traffic and sampled over the course of President Obama’s first year of presidency. A composite month was then created using an equal probability sampling method. Analysis revealed that although coverage of Blacks in news has improved in frequency, thanks in part to stories involving the first family, they are heavily stereotyped within Internet news. Explanations for the minimal effect that Barack and Michelle Obama have on the overall presentation of African American is discussed within the exact nature of coverage that each receive. Implications of these findings are discussed within the light of the goodness of fit principle.
