The framework, which is depicted in Figure 2 . 1 , is simple and general, employing only a few conceptual components: • A body of text, the data that a content analyst has available to begin an analytical effort 29 30 ..

(1991) compared humans' coding of political news coverage with data from Fan's (19 8 8 ) computer­ coded approach to the same coverage and found satisfactory correlations between the two. Nacos et al. came to the conclusion that content analysts can best use computers in their research by thinking of them as aids, not as replacements for the highly developed human capabilities of reading, transcribing, and translating written matter.

Just as the analytical contexts that content analysts must adopt may vary from one analysis to another, these contexts may also differ from the interpretive schemes that unaided listeners, viewers, or readers employ in reading their sen­ sory data, the characters of their texts, and the messages they receive. The same body of texts can therefore yield very different findings when examined by dif­ ferent analysts and with reference to different groups of readers.
