CONTENT ANALYSIS OF ENVIRONMENTAL SUBJECTS IN THE DAILY NEWSPAPERS IN THE STATE OF BAHRAIN

Auther : By: Ismali Mohammad Al-Madni, Ali Ahmad Abdullah and Zakaria Abdulqadr

 
 

The main objective of this study is to investigate the role of daily newspapers in Bahrain in promoting environmental public awareness by a comprehensive content analysis of all environmental topics that were published in the daily newspapers during one year.

In light of content analysis conducted, the following points can be concluded:

1.                 Newspapers in Bahrain focused on local and international environmental issues, but neglected issues related to the Gulf and Arab States in general.

2.                 Newspapers concentrated environmental pollution as a problem, but did not give proper attention to other major problems, such as desertification and protection of wildlife.

3.                There is deficiency in analytical coverage of environmental issues in the newspapers.  This might be due to the fact that most reporters are not specialized in environmental affairs and do not refer to reliable and authentic sources of information such as scientific journals and environmental specialists.

4.                Environmental issues were not given priority in publication and thus most of articles appeared in inside pages.

There is urgent need in establishing defined policies and strategies for the coverage of environmental issues as well as need for the training reporters in the field of environmental reporting.
