The article analyzes how the press in 10 European countries portrayed the Euro crisis. It aims at identifying the main interpretations given to the crisis and at evaluating to what extent such interpretations were influenced by variables such as the national belonging, the newspapers’ typology, and ideological orientation. By applying the technique of the multiple correspondence analysis, we highlighted that the interpretations of the Euro crisis were organized along four major dimensions: (1) accuracy, (2) magnitude and accountability mechanism, (3) attitude and expectations, and (4) characterization. Results suggest that facing common problems did not encourage the press of different states to cover the Euro crisis in a similar way. Rather, the most interesting finding appears to be the prevalent intra-country homogeneity that reveals similarities among different newspapers’ types.

Abstract

The article analyzes how the press in 10 European countries portrayed the Euro crisis. It aims at identifying the main interpretations given to the crisis and at evaluating to what extent such interpretations were influenced by variables such as the national belonging, the newspapers’ typology, and ideological orientation. By applying the technique of the multiple correspondence analysis, we highlighted that the interpretations of the Euro crisis were organized along four major dimensions: (1) accuracy, (2) magnitude and accountability mechanism, (3) attitude and expectations, and (4) characterization. Results suggest that facing common problems did not encourage the press of different states to cover the Euro crisis in a similar way. Rather, the most interesting finding appears to be the prevalent intra-country homogeneity that reveals similarities among different newspapers’ types.
