ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to examine how the Chinese press reports their nuclear power generation. Specifically, we analyzed the article type, news frame, and tone of coverage reported in People’s Daily and Guangming Daily. The main findings are as follows. A commentary appeared to be the dominant type(77%). It is showed that the main news frame of the Chinese Press is episodic frame (86%) that usually used to be a positive tone toward China’s nuclear power policy. The content frame is skewed heavily toward the topics on the pride of one's own country’s nuclear technology and enhancing safety awareness frame(61%). In addition, the frames which are newly added to the Chinese press reports include nuclear technology, enhancing safety awareness, pride of their own technology, and education for nuclear power frame. These findings are expected to be used as basic data to establish a policy for environmental risk communication concerning nuclear power in Northeast Asia.
