A new PhD thesis from Dublin City University has been published online. In the thesis, Henry Silke writes about the growing symbiotic relationship between business, communication networks and the mass media.
He explores the role of mass media in the Irish economic crisis. Silke found a source bias towards financial interests and mainstream politics, and concludes that market orientated framing is consistently found across the papers.
The thesis can be found in the DCU Online Research Access Service, here.
