Title: Racial framing in the 2008 presidential election: a content analysis of geographically diverse newspapers and the framing of Barack Obama
Author: Mason, Jeffrey
Abstract: This study content analyzed three geographically diverse newspapers: The Boston Globe, The Star Tribune, and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution to determine if there were geographic differences in the frequency that Barack Obama was referred to by his race and the frequency that the race of the voters was mentioned regarding then-candidate Obama. No differences were found in how Obama or the voters were referenced across the three newspapers.
