Ruxandra BOICU, The current world crisis and the thematic changes in media discourse: An illustration of masculinization of political journalists’ discourse


Abstract: This paper proposes an analysis of journalistic discourse in two media events. The current world crisis produced economic and social changes which triggered alterations of the priorities on the journalists’ and politicians’ agendas. Through the analysis of thematic structures in the political journalists’ discourses, we aim to reveal these alterations that we associate with the masculinization of political and journalistic discourse.

Keywords: economic crisis; political journalism; televised presidential debates; debate moderators; debate management; topic control; thematic structure; salient debate issues; feminine discourse; masculine discourse.
