Frames of Coverage of State Reforms in Russian Media
Sociology
(Bachelor’s programme)
2019
In this study we raise a question about the implicit strategies which might have been used by the media in order to mitigate the negative impact of the reform’s adoption on a public opinion. The research aims to identify the types of frames used by the Russian media in order to cover the government’s actions and their consequences in a certain way. The study draws on Irving Goffman’s theory of frames, adopted for the study of media and a public policy by M. Rein, D.Schon, S. Iyengar, et. al; theories of agenda-setting (mostly associated with M. McCombs’ name) and various theories of media bias. In order to conduct a study of frames used by the Russian media, we will analyze text publications dedicated to the reform and published by the most popular Russian media, using a method of a content analysis.
