The f...

This paper seeks to understand how journalists deal with storytelling and truth-seeking in their daily news practice. While storytelling is usually studied through texts, we approached it from a practice perspective, combining data from three ethnographic studies in which 36 beat reporters and 13 journalistic storytelling experts were extensively i...

Samenvatting In deze methodologische bijdrage reflecteren de auteurs over hoe frame building onderwerp van onderzoek kan vormen. Het artikel spitst zich toe op culturele frames, en bekijkt hoe deze zich verhouden tot het nieuws, met de schemata van journalisten en met interacties op de werkvloer. Daarbij wordt voor een multimethodische aanpak geple...

Starting point is the overview of Entman’s four locations of frames: in the head of the author of a message and in that of the public, in a message and in culture. The paper, however, focuses on cultural frames, and looks at the way in which it rel...

While most frame-building studies focus on the relative contribution of journalists or sources to news frames, this article presents and evaluates an integrated methodological model.

For a period of 6 weeks, a frame analysis of news stories was linked to reconstruction interviews with reporters and supplemented by newsroom observa...

Full-text available
In this article we present a cross-national comparison of framing of the issue of the ‘Syria fighters’ in Flanders and the Netherlands. We examine this topic using inductive and deductive framing analysis and interpret the results in terms of the advocates expressing the frames and the newspapers they were published in. We argue that variation in f...
Article
The origin of news production processes has not been extensively researched. This study identifies the factors that influence journalists' preferences for certain newsgathering channels to others at the genesis of news production: (1) the type of newspaper; (2) the centralization of the newsroom; (3) the story selection autonomy of the reporter; an...
