This study compared the news coverage of election campaigns in two Swedish and two U.S. newspapers. Based on framing theory, the results from the content analysis show that the strategic game metaframe was used more frequently by the U.S. newspapers while the issue metaframe was more common for the Swedish newspapers. U.S. articles were also more likely to use the horse race and political strategy frames. While U.S. coverage was predominantly descriptive in focus, Swedish coverage offered more analysis and interpretation of the election campaign. ..PAT.-Conference Proceeding [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
