Framing online media: A comparative analysis on alternative and mainstream news coverage of TEKEL workers protest

This study aims to introduce a general frame of the online non-mainstream news media in Turkey by providing an inclusive comparative analysis on the case of State Monopoly of Alcohol and Tobacco Products (TEKEL) workers protest. After having defined the case of TEKEL workers, agendas of the non-mainstream websites will be compared with that of mainstream media while the news content on TEKEL workers protest will be framed. Employed as the theoretical method in this study, framing will help to focus on the similar content within both agendas and to reveal the discrepancies among media content.
