Crime News in the Emirates Press ( A Sociological Content Analysis )

Auther : S.Sari

This study takes the Mass Media production as Sociologically problematic. It addresses itself primarily to the question of how crime, deviance and social problems are portrayed in the National Press of an Arab Oil country subject to, and threatened by,a massive foreign immigrant forces. A sociologically relevant form of Content Analysis was developed to account for the analysis of crime news content in the three major daily newspapers during a period of three successive years. One significant conclusion of this study is that the crime waves brought to the attention of society members in nothing more than the waves of the foreign immigrants themselves-both the old settlers and the new comers. Crime is consistently reported as an emergent, ready-made and imported problem rather to the social and politico-economic structure of the overall society. National press has functioned within this context as a means of social control; as socially committed more than professionally oriented organizations. This finding does not give much support to the western Amplification argument but perhaps lends some support to the sensistization/immoralization of crime/ criminal problem.
