Effects of multimodal news framing
Words and images in news media lay a vital role in defining, or framing, citizens' understanding of political issues. The European refugee crisis provides a prime example of news frames in action. One the one hand, many news outlets frame refugees as innocent victims of the Syrian war, alongside images of suffering families being pulled out of stricken boats. Other news media use a very different vocabulary of 'floods' of hostile intruders accompanied by images of aggressive (especially male) crowds. Thomas Powell investigates how visual and verbal elements in news work together to frame citizens' understanding of politics.
