News Coverage of Global Disasters: Journalism's Power to Aid Healing and Recovery addresses an underexplored aspect of news, arguing that journalism helps people heal and recover in the aftermath of significant traumas.
This comparative analysis draws from local and international news in eight countries around the world that suffered a natural disaster in 2018.
This book evaluates ten news themes that aid healing, coping, hope and recovery during and after a natural disaster.
Analysis shows that these ten characteristics are a common element within news, transcending national borders.
McCluskey brings together contemporary theories of news choice and practice with examination of the journalistic culture within each country.
Analysis also includes contextual and structural factors within each country and national disaster.
Scholars interested in journalism, crisis communication, and media studies will find this book particularly useful.
