Immigrants have enhanced America. Immigrants and illegal aliens are neither inherently good nor inherently bad. Illegal aliens come here with an implicit 'blind eye' approval.
War and violent conflict are mentioned in just eight of ninety articles in all three newspapers, a very low figure when compared with the thirty-seven articles discussing the relatively minor issue of asylum seeker accommodation. Macro issues that might embarrass powerful state-corporate interests are also ignored or neglected.
Two major examples include the impacts of the arms trade and economic trade liberalisation. The former receives no mention at all, while the latter is hinted at indirectly in one piece in the Guardian. The majority of articles that discussed human rights as a theme covered the same issue, about UK consiering withdrawing from the European Convention on Human Rights in order to justify the exclusion of certain asylum seekers.
Yet, while a human rights issue, it is placed in the context of exclusion policies and bogus asylum applicants. This limits to just three articles any mention of human rights abuses in the country of origin — abuses that might have caused the original application to be made, and which cast a far less negative light on the subject of asylum and immigration.
In looking at the media coverage, an interesting observation was made: An interesting, perhaps ironic, footnote to the thematic results involves the eight references made to media coverage.
Both the Guardian and the Independent provide a number of articles denouncing what they describe as the essentially racist coverage of tabloid and right-wing newspapers, including the third news outlet in this case study, the Daily Telegraph. The latter does not follow this theme and has no articles mentioning media coverage.
Matthew Randall, Asylum and Immigration; Comparing the Daily Telegraph, The Guardian and The IndependentMedia Lens, December 8, While a full third of the case studies afforded view points from non-governmental organizations NGOs politicians being afforded the most coverage giving the sense of balance, Randall notes that, a closer analysis shows that politicians remain overwhelmingly the agenda-setters in these articles with NGO representatives very seldom initiating the subject of the news item.
Their role is very much confined to reaction and comment. This general trend reveals how view points representing those who have influence are the ones that typically make it into mainstream discourse.
Analysis of media sourcing demonstrates that UK newsgathering has a strong symbiotic relationship with political elites ensuring that a substantial number of articles are formed around government press releases and statements of policy.
Groups without recourse to large public relations resources — such as asylum seekers, refugees and the predominantly small NGOs that represent them — tend not to set the agenda for issues under discussion. We therefore get a strange situation whereby ideologically distinct newspapers focus on aspects of immigration and asylum that concur with the priorities of the political elite The significant avoidance and omission of important themes and issues that should form regular and central points of reference leads to a support of an agenda of the political elite, even if that is not the intention.
Opinions reflect hype — especially during election time Almost a year and a half since the above was written, the hype has remained.
And as the British elections have drawn closer, the issue of immigration and asylum has been one of the issues discussed out of an extremely small number of issues, it has to be added. Just 21 of them were allowed to claim benefits 0. But targeted screening at Heathrow airport found just cases intests in 0.
The British Medical Association said it has seen no evidence of a health tourism phenomenon. For a long time, but increasingly during election times, spear-headed by right-wing parties such as the Conservatives and tabloid media, scares of immigration being out of control are returning.
For sure, there have been isolated incidents that cause much concern, such as the recent case of a failed asylum seeker killing a police officer and conspiring to create the deadly poison ricin though it seems police foiled that in time. However, using terrorism to add to the asylum and immigration hysteria just creates more fear and animosity.
In effect, it also suggests that almost all especially brown-skinned asylum seekers and immigrants are potential terrorists. It has even got to the point where I know some fellow Asians in UK who also say that immigration is out of control, though they talk not of people from their own ethnicities and backgrounds of course, but of others.
