Coverage of Burma in Six Elite Newspapers
Repository Usage Stats
This project compares the United States, United Kingdom and Thailand’s print media coverage of Burma. Examining six newspapers’ coverage of Burma in 2008 and 2010, the project studies how newspapers frame Burma differently in international coverage. For each newspaper, news coverage of Burma is driven by politics, with an emphasis on the political role of Aung San Suu Kyi. Aside from instances when a specific event demands international engagement with Burma, news organizations rely on policy elites to reduce the cost of reporting news about Burma.
