Malaysia’s 14th General Elections: Mainstream Newspaper Coverage of Political Parties

Mainstream news in Malaysia remain an important site of study during Malaysia’s 14th general elections. Despite the public’s decreasing trust in them, state-owned mainstream newspapers are a presentation of what its stakeholders consider to be key issues. This seminar deals with the content analysis of how competing political coalitions are covered and framed in four English and Malay language newspapers during the campaign period.
