MetadataShow full item record
Donald Trump was the third American president to be impeached on 18 December 2019 for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. A divided Senate, voting nearly completely along party lines, acquitted Trump on 5 February 2020. The aim of this study is to examine the representation of Donald Trump during the impeachment process in two of the most appreciated newspapers in the United States, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, by using a corpus of 200 articles collected from these newspapers, 100 from each. The two newspapers were chosen for their differences as The New York Times tends to be more liberal and The Wall Street Journal more conservative. Antconc toolkit is used for the corpus analysis.
