Media representation of immigration in a migrant provider and migrant receptor country: A critical discourse analysis
The purpose of this study is to analyze how the online media from Mexico and the United States represents immigrants from Mexico based on the language used in articles about immigration issues, and how that choice of words contribute to shape the creation of stereotypical ideas about certain ethnic groups. All this aims to contribute to a growing body of literature on language used by the media and its influence over the media consumers. The online versions of the following four newspapers were analyzed as part of this study: El Diario NTR and El Universal from Mexico and Los Angeles Times and The New York Times from the United States. Critical discourse analysis was the approach utilized to analyze the online newspapers.
