Abstract

This study considers images of China in the Australian press, using articles on China’s one-child policy as a case study. It adopts a multilayered theoretical framework and a mixed research approach to investigate what factors lie behind the different images in newspapers owned by different publishers, national and local papers, broadsheet and tabloid papers, and general and specialist financial newspapers. It further investigates the story frames used by journalists to create those images and the relationship between the factors influencing the choice of positive or negative images and the story frames employed.
