CPD Releases Report on “China in the News”

The USC Center on Public Diplomacy in cooperation with Deutsche Welle released a report on "China in the News: A Comparative Analysis of the China Coverage of BBC World Service, CNN International, and Deutsche Welle".

Authors Philip Seib and Shawn Powers present the results of a comparative analysis of the China coverage of three international broadcasters: BBC World Service, CNN International and Deutsche Welle (DW). Drawing upon the results of a quantitative and qualitative content and framing analysis, the report identifies three different approaches to covering China-related news. Although all three broadcasters produced a similar number of China stories, the researchers found that the broadcasters each focused on different types of stories and utilized different frames in reporting China news.
