Nigeria's private media and agenda setting : an evaluation of ThisDay newspaper's house editorials (2004) by Uche Onyebadi( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines how ThisDay newspaper's use of house editorials relates to the performance of its agenda-setting function in the Nigerian society. One of the basic arguments in the study is that unlike news, media houses can control both the content and form of their house editorials. Consequently, the house editorials are very potent instruments for the setting of agenda in a given polity. After coding 270 house editorials published by the newspaper in 2004, the year under investigation, one principal finding is the preponderance of house editorials that dealt with government and politics. More specifically, they were mostly anchored on issues related to the federal government. Interestingly, foreign affairs issues featured prominently in the house editorials. The study went beyond the categorization of data to ascertain how the house editorials were framed. Most of them were critical, condemnatory and generally called for policy or action change. This is a descriptive study with agenda setting and framing as its theoretical foundation, and content analysis as the methodology. However, it went beyond manifest content to draw inferences, stating what issues the newspaper treated and how it treated them. It also suggested areas for further research to enrich the reservoir of communications research in Nigeria
Towards an examination and expansion of the agenda setting theory : did the media matter in Kenya's presidential election, 2007? by Uche Onyebadi( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study assesses the usefulness of the agenda setting theory in communications research outside its traditional European and American habitat. It examines Kenya (Africa), with the research question: Did the media matter in Kenya's 2007 presidential election? Furthermore, it examines the media's role just before and after the election in Kenya, to ascertain whether the media anticipated the nation-wide violence that rocked the country, and how that event was subsequently covered. Research results suggest issues, cognitive and affective media agenda setting influence on the public agenda, and positively answered the research question. Respondents also perceived media influence in their choice of political candidates. This study also found that the media did not anticipate or point to the possibility of a violent outcome from the election, but deeply resorted to peace journalism when the violence erupted and spread. Content analysis and survey were used in the study. Overall, this research adds to attempts to universalize the agenda setting theory. It shows that the theory is a learning process that affects decisions, not just showing media influence on what their audiences think about. It also points out the failure of the media in not going beyond horse-race issues in an election. On the other hand, it demonstrates the media's capacity as a force for cohesion and unity in times of national tragedy
