Percentage of front page surface area dedicated to the Haiti earthquake and the Japanese tsunami. Rey-Mazón, P. (2013). Comparison of the surface coverage dedicated to the Haiti earthquake (day 1 = January 12th, 2010) and the Japanese tsunami (day 1 = March 11th, 2011) in 4 Spanish newspapers. Remarkable is the rapid drop of the Japanese crisis coverage after day 8 (March 18th, 2011), caused by the UN’s authorization allowing the international community to enter the war in Libya. Context is usually absent from this type of analysis. Source: (Rey-Mazón, 2013)
