Florida’s Fluid Latino Vote

  • This new makeup of Florida’s Latino population was hard to predict politically

Why a framing study
Why a Framing Study?

  • Words Matter!

    • Who says what, how?

  • Illegal or Undocumented?

  • Framing helps to understand the power dynamics behind who is shaping the media

T test english newspaper frames
t-Test English Newspaper Frames

  • There was a significant difference in the scores for Miami Herald (M=15, SD=9.9) and Orlando Sentinel (M=5, SD=4.6); t(16)=2.7443, p=0.019.

    • With a significance level under the threshold (p<0.05) we reject the Null Hypothesis.

T test spanish newspaper frames
t-Test Spanish Newspaper Frames

  • There was a significant difference in the scores for El Heraldo (M=12.2, SD= 10.8) and El Sentinel (M=3.7, SD=4.2); t(16)=2.224, p=0.049.

    • The low number of samples in Spanish Orlando, however, makes the reliability of this parametric test questionable.

T test english v spanish miami
t-Test English v. Spanish Miami

  • There was not a statistically significant difference in the scores for the Miami Herald (M=15, SD= 9.9) and El Heraldo de Miami (M=12.2, SD=10.8); t(16)=2.1199, p=0.057.

    • There were differences but not statistically significant ones at of 0.05 threshold.

T test english v spanish orlando
t-Test English v. Spanish Orlando

  • There was not a statistically significant difference in the results for the sister publications in Orlando.

  • The e Orlando Sentinel (M=5, SD= 4.6) and El Sentinel de Orlando (M=3.7, SD=4.2); t(16)=0.6468, p=0.053.

    • Small sample of Orlando Spanish articles may have skewed parametric calculations.

    • You don’t need a parametric test to see something is going on here.

What does this mean
What does this mean?

  • Obviously, different communities frame issues differently.

  • How the same news organization frames different Language communities remains a question.
