Title: As the streets burned: a comparison of the coverage of the 2005 Paris riots
Author: Blakley, Julianna
Abstract: This is a study of the historical context of the 2005 Paris riots and a comparison of the coverage in the American and French press, Specifically, it examined a three-week period of coverage of the riots from October 28-November 21,2005, in four newspapers: The New York Times, the Washington Post, Le Monde and Le Figaro. The articles were looked at in both a quantitative and qualitative manner, assessing how many articles appeared, what topics they covered and how they were framed. While there were many fundamental differences in visual content and editorial stance, there were also many similarities in the percentage of articles that appeared on the outlined topic areas. There was also an editorial battle that occurred in the two newspapers, with the French attacking the American press for sensationalizing the riots.
