This study looks at how the Wall Street Journal framed the conflict in Southern Sudan that has resulted in over 300,000 deaths, and close to 4 million people being displaced within just one year of fighting. Goffman’s frame analysis was used in analyzing the newspaper articles in order to better understand the western perspective utilized by a mainstream media in covering the conflict.
