Abstract

This study examines the foreign media framing of Hurricane Katrina and foreign correspondents' journalistic expectations from the U.S. media coverage of the disaster. A content analysis of the foreign press and a survey of non-U.S. journalists were conducted. Overall journalistic expectations were not met in terms of public dialog, diversity and skepticism but were satisfied for investigative reporting and accuracy. Great differences in opinion were seen between foreign correspondents from Europe and other continents.
