ABSTRACT

This study aims to examine crisis stages and news reporting characteristics in the disaster coverage in the case of the Sewol Ferry sinking. As the title of a news article has substantial influence on whether an article is chosen for reading and how it is read, the titles of news articles were used to select the articles regarding the Sewol Ferry sinking reported for the first four months since the incident occurred. The titles were classified by attribute agenda and keywords were sorted using the Macro program. The data were analyzed using network analysis and content analysis. The results of network analysis indicate that keywords change in accordance with crisis stages and vary among newspaper publishing companies. The results of content analysis show that attribute agendas change depending on the crisis stage. As the crisis gets severer, the characteristics of the newspaper companies become clearer.
