The Israel-Palestine Conflict in 2021: A comparative analysis of framing in The Jakarta Post and Gulf News.
|dc.description.abstract||In May 2021, the Israel-Palestine conflict experienced the highest death toll and casualties, as well as immense damages to land. With the world constantly tuned in, news outlets across the globe have been reporting the war heavily. However, a question is raised regarding whether the conflict has been reported in a different manner depending on the news outlet’s country of origin. Taking this into consideration, this study investigates how the conflict has been framed by Gulf News and The Jakarta Post - two large English-centered newspapers from the UAE and the latter from Indonesia. Using a discourse analytic approach for 20 articles, it was found that Gulf News demonstrated more humanitarian framing of the war, whereas The Jakarta Post displayed a more antagonistic approach. A cross-cultural analysis also found that political relationships have an effect on framing. From this, the results have become a contributing piece of research investigating the relationship between framing and the reporting of world news by different countries.||en_US|
