ABSTRACT

This paper examines major elements of broadcasting news on the South Korean Sewol ferry disaster, including frames, sources and visuals. The episodic and responsibility frames were frequently used in disaster news. Official government-related sources were primarily used in most news frames, whereas episodic, human interest, and community-atonement frames were mostly used when citizen and victim sources appeared. Close-up shots were contained in episodic and human interest frames. Episodic frame news used computer graphics (CG) more often than thematic news while the attribution of responsibility frame used CG elements the most among content-based news frames.
