News coverage of the Sergio Hernández case in newspapers of the border region
This study analyzes the news coverage of two newspapers from the border region between the United States and México (El Paso Times ) from El Paso, Texas; and (El Diario de Juárez) from Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, about the case of Sergio Hernández, a 15 year old Mexican teenager who was shot and killed by a U.S. Border Patrol agent in the boundary zone between both countries on June 7, 2010. Using a textual analysis of the stories published about this case in these newspapers, the research seeks to identify news frames and competing meanings of community and identity embedded in the journalistic texts.
