Title: A Cross-National and Intermedia Study of U.S. and European Online Newspapers: the Depth and Breadth of International News Coverage
Author: Terukhova, Yana
Abstract: This study examines 1 92 newspaper issues by the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Times, the Independent, and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung during one month. The purpose of the study is twofold: to compare depth and breadth of international news coverage (1) by U.S. and European online newspapers and (2) by the printed and online New York Times. A cross-national comparison reveals broader coverage in the U.S. newspapers; the European newspapers offer deeper coverage in hypertext dimension. Based on the content analysis, the online New York Times covers more international news, while the printed edition allocates a larger part of its newshole for the world news. The findings reveal intermedia agenda- setting between the two New York Times publications.
