Summary
This journalism master's project includes a professional work component and an analysis component. The professional work component details the author's experiences working as a Computer-Assisted Reporting intern at the Scripps Howard News Service in Washington, D.C. The author describes his experiences with some computer-assisted reporting projects that analyzed and investigated thousands of major U.S. charities using a forensic accounting technique to get false financial reports. Includes field notes and examples of work. In the analysis component the author examines "the coverage of the 2011 Japan earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear crisis to see how newspapers frame a natural disaster that has occurred in another country." (p. 52) Conducting a qualitative framing analysis, the author identifies five major frames that are common in three different newspapers from countries outside Japan, which are "the safety frame, human frame, 'don't panic' frame, risk and anxiety frame, and the disruption frame." (p. 52) The author concludes that "most newspaper articles focused on the developing nuclear reactor crisis, used expert sources, evoked a theme of loss, and included almost equal representations of optimism and pessimism." (p. 52) Includes a literature review
