    Defending a paradigm by patrolling a boundary: two global newspapers' approach to WikiLeaks
  • Author: Coddington, Mark
  • Description: Drawing on the concepts of paradigm repair and professional boundary work, this study examined the way the New York Times and The Guardian portrayed the whistleblowing group WikiLeaks as being beyond the bounds of professional journalism. Through a textual analysis of Times and Guardian content about WikiLeaks during 2010 and early 2011, the study found that the Times depicted WikiLeaks as outside journalism's professional norms regarding institutionality, source-based reporting routines, and objectivity, while the Guardian did so only with institutionality. That value thus emerged as a supranational journalistic norm, while source-based reporting routines and objectivity were bound within national contexts.
