1. Makhadmeh, Naheda, 1984-. Frames, modalities, topics and sources : a comparative content analysis of natural disaster, terrorist attack and civil unrest crises by Egyptian journalist bloggers and citizen bloggers.

Degree: 2014, Michigan State University

Thesis Ph. D. Michigan State University. Media and Information Studies - Doctor of Philosophy 2014.

News blogs provide the media and individuals with analyses and information about crises. The researcher looked at the differences between journalist and citizen bloggers in their coverage of crises: natural disaster, terrorist attack and civil unrest. In particular, the researcher examined frames, topics, sources, and modalities. A quantitative content analysis was conducted of 214 Egyptian journalists blog posts and 227 citizen blogs posts. The researcher collected blog posts about each crisis (in both Arabic and English) from the first day and two weeks after each crisis date in 33 journalist blogs and 33 citizen blogs. The researcher analyzed posts about Sinai terrorist attacks and flooding because they were small samples, and took a random sample of 140 blog posts about the revolution from each type of blogger because it was a large sample. The researcher found citizen bloggers were more likely to cover a natural disaster (flooding) than journalist bloggers. The researcher also found that journalist bloggers were more likely to cover a terrorist attack in the coverage of a civil unrest crisis, whereas citizen bloggers used the attribution of responsibility, and human-interest frame more than journalist bloggers. In framing a terrorist attack crisis, journalist bloggers were more likely to use a conflict frame than citizen bloggers, while citizens were more likely to use human interest than journalist bloggers. According to the frames used in the natural disaster crisis, journalist bloggers used the morality frame more than citizen bloggers. Politics was the topic most frequently used in the lead and the one that got the most space in journalist and citizen bloggers. Journalist bloggers are more likely to put the topic that got the most space in the lead paragraph than citizen bloggers. On the other hand, journalist bloggers are more likely to use sources than were citizen bloggers. Journalist bloggers are more likely to use scientists, eyewitnesses, and media sources than citizen bloggers, while citizen bloggers are more likely to use documents and governmental sources than journalist bloggers. With regard to post modalities, citizen bloggers were more likely to use images in their posts than journalist bloggers, while journalists are more likely to use video posts than citizen bloggers. Journalists used hyperlinks in their posts more than citizen bloggers. Citizen bloggers when compared to journalists were more likely to use images that looked professional and had people in the photos while journalists were more likely to use info-graphic images than citizen bloggers. This dissertation expands the existing knowledge about two types of bloggers, journalists and citizen, and how they used frames, topics, sources, and modalities in the coverage of crises. Future studies could look at the comparison between types of bloggers in the coverage of two continuous crises or sudden crises to make sure that the duration…

2. Howell, Alexis Francine. How does a woman reporter's background affect sources in her news stories?.

Degree: 2017, Michigan State University

"As journalists begin to create stories, they need to find sources. Sources can include a variety of people. Depending on the story assigned, sources can range from officials to people on the street. When journalists decide who to talk to, they always want the best source, however, individual reporters must decide who is qualified to be the best source. My research questions asked whether race and years of experience were important in determining the choice of sources, I interviewed female television and newspaper reporters who differed in terms of race and experience. In depth interviews with these women suggests that a number of variables are important to how they chose sources. Some of the factors include socioeconomic background, years of experience in the industry and educational background. Each reporter had her own take on how comfortable she was when it came to interviewing sources. The reporters provided insight on what makes them approach sources, but many of the reasons for course choice were factors other than gender and race. In some cases gender and race did play a role because of who they felt was more approachable. The contribution of this thesis is the fact that I attempted to explore in depth how female journalists think about their own choices of sources." – Page ii.

3. Bowe, Brian J. Framing moral evaluations : moral foundations in U.S. newspaper coverage of mosque controversies.

Degree: 2014, Michigan State University

In recent years, attempts by Muslims all across the U.S. to build worship spaces have been met with opposition. Some opponents questioned whether Islam should be considered a religion afforded all the protections of the First Amendment, or whether it is a sinister ideology that posed a threat to American values and should therefore be opposed. Supporters, on the other hand, argued that protecting the rights of Muslims to worship freely is a validation of important American principles. This debate played out in news coverage of the issue.This dissertation examines the discourse in the debate through a framing analysis of news articles and editorials (n=349) from five U.S. newspapers between 2010 and 2013. Framing is the selection and emphasis of certain problem definitions, causal attributions, moral evaluations, and treatment recommendations in discussion of an issue. This research makes a contribution to framing theory by using Moral Foundations Theory to improve the operationalization of the moral evaluation dimension of framing. A cluster analysis of moral foundations was conducted, which four moral foundation profiles, all of which were strongly rooted in socially binding moral foundations. Those moral foundation variables were subsequently incorporated into a full framing analysis. A cluster analysis of all the framing components revealed five frames: Local Regulation, Political Debate, Muslim Neighbors, Islamic Threat, and Legal Authority. A subsequent qualitative analysis validated that these five frames encompassed the bulk of the debate.
