1. Matanji, Frankline Bradly. Framing the Chinese Investment in Africa: Media Coverage in Africa, China, United Kingdom, and the United States.

Degree: MA, Media and Communication, 2019, Bowling Green State University

News media coverage plays an important role in influencing people’s perception and opinion toward public affairs. This study is grounded on the framing theory to understand the tones and the frames adopted by media from various regions in the coverage of Chinese investment in Africa. Relying on the news articles collected from Factiva and Nexis Uni databases from 2013 to 2018, this study examines the media coverage in Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, China, United States, and United Kingdom. This study conducts a quantitative content analysis by focusing on four tones (i.e., positive, negative, neutral, and mixed tones) and five generic frames (i.e., conflict, human interest, attribution of responsibility, morality, and economic consequences). The results indicate that Chinese, Kenyan, South African, and Nigerian media reported Chinese investment in Africa with a positive tone while media in the U.S. and the U.K. adopted a negative tone. Furthermore, each generic frame was adopted with varying levels of intensity across the countries investigated in this study. Implications are discussed in terms of how each country’s economic and political interests involved in the Chinese investment could exert influence on the news media coverage. Advisors/Committee Members: Lu, Yanqin (Committee Chair).
