PhD candidate, Journalism & New Media, Cardiff University

My research focuses on how US cable news networks employ emotion in their reporting, specifically looking at the video content that they produce for online consumption. Through analysis of Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, BBC, Al Jazeera and TYT, I hope to see if there is any link between the topics that are covered and the types of emotion that are most used with those topics, as well as the extent of their use.

My particular areas of interest are YouTube, Twitter, American politics and the goings on in the American media landscape.
