Gordon, J. C., Deines, T., & Havice, J. (2010). Global Warming Coverage in the Media: Trends in a Mexico City Newspaper. Science Communication, 32(2), 143 -170.
This study examined newspaper coverage, intensity of stories (how intensely the issue of global warming is presented), and the presence of frames, solutions, and conflicts surrounding the global warming issue in 144 articles appearing from 2004 through 2006 in the Mexico City—based newspaper, Reforma. The ecology/science frame and consequences frames were the most intensely reported frames. Scientific conflict and U.S. conflict are present, but in low frequencies and near the end of stories. International relations were the most frequently presented solution to global warming, and story frequencies peaked during international conferences. Consistent with previous findings, this study found that foreign media tend to emphasize international relations and de-emphasize conflicts and controversies.
