The New York Times and The Times (London) ignored the plights of Bangalees in their reporting throughout the nine months of Bangladesh's Liberation War, says a new study.
The paper, appearing recently in the "Journalism: Theory, Practices and Criticism", a journal published by SAGE Publications, found the roles examining 285 news stories run in the front pages of these newspapers from March 16 to December 17, 1971, says a press release.
Results suggest that the newspapers focused more on the involvement of big world powers in the war, and only 16.8 percent of the reports were human-interest stories (based on the sufferings of Bangalees due to the atrocities by the Pakistani army). Moreover, the newspapers relied mostly on official sources as the primary sources in the reports, the survey reveals.
The researcher, Mohammad Delwar Hossain, a PhD candidate in mass communication and media arts at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, used the framing theory, which focuses on the construction of a phenomenon by the mass media that helps audience interpret the world accordingly.
