This chapter addresses the question of the positioning of transnational news by an examination of a corpus of news bulletins from four providers: Al Jazeera; Russia Today; CCTV; France 24. A corpus of thirty-six half-hour news broadcasts was recorded for each of the four channels between 2011 and 2014 as part of a project with students of Political and Communication Science at the University of Siena. All were analysed for their content and transcribed making a verbal corpus of over 100,000 words We ask the questions: how do these channels define their position in relation to the Anglosphere, and how does their positioning emerge, coincide or diverge in the way they present a sample news item? Do they present themselves as standing with, against, undecided or neutral with respect to assessments, beliefs and assumptions about the world?

Abstract

This chapter addresses the question of the positioning of transnational news by an examination of a corpus of news bulletins from four providers: Al Jazeera; Russia Today; CCTV; France 24. A corpus of thirty-six half-hour news broadcasts was recorded for each of the four channels between 2011 and 2014 as part of a project with students of Political and Communication Science at the University of Siena. All were analysed for their content and transcribed making a verbal corpus of over 100,000 words We ask the questions: how do these channels define their position in relation to the Anglosphere, and how does their positioning emerge, coincide or diverge in the way they present a sample news item? Do they present themselves as standing with, against, undecided or neutral with respect to assessments, beliefs and assumptions about the world?
