Abstract/Description:
This study is a quantitative content analysis of the New York Times and Washington Post coverage of Iran during the period surrounding the Ayatollah KhomeiniÂÂ's ascension to power in 1979 as well as the period surrounding Mahmoud AhmadinejadÂÂ's election in 2005. The results showed that coverage of Iran in the elite American print media as it related to terror was higher in the period after Khomeini came to power and also in the period after AhmadinejadÂÂ's election than it was in the period immediately preceding their respective ascensions. The results also showed that there was more coverage of Iran as it related to terror in the year surrounding AhmadinejadÂÂ's election than there was during the year surrounding Ayatollah KhomeiniÂÂ's rise to power in Iran.
