The effect of training programs on international gatekeeping
MetadataShow full item record
Current research on training programs and journalism fails to address the effectiveness of training programs. This thesis focuses on the number and types of articles published by media organizations that sent a gatekeeper to participate in the International Reporting Project. It was hypothesized that the IRP would increase the number of stories published about international conflict, the number of sources and direct quotes, the number of female sources, the number of non-government and military officials used as sources, the number of foreign sources. It was also hypothesized that there would be an increase in regional coverage. This thesis also takes into consideration the current state of the media industry.
