A cobertura de mídia escrita tradicional e os eventos de cibersegurança

o caso NSA



Cibersegurança, Edward Snowden, Opinião pública, Análise de sentimento, Mídia escrita


Este artigo investiga a maneira como três portais de comunicação escrita (CNN, Fox News e BBC), vistos como politicamente partidários, enquadraram as notícias sobre Edward Snowden envolvendo questões sensíveis sobre cibersegurança. Sendo a mídia um ator influente na política nacional e internacional, importa conhecer como a mídia enquadra os fatos sobre informações de falhas de segurança na internet, sob disputa narrativa. Análises de sentimentos foram realizadas em centenas de artigos destes portais de livre acesso entre 2013 e 2018. Os resultados mostram sentimentos disseminados pela maioria das manchetes, enquanto textos mais neutros são encontrados no corpo das notícias.
