Islamofobia velada: un análisis de los titulares de The New York Times y The Wall Street Journal antes y después de Charlie Hebdo

Palabras clave: Charlie Hebdo, Islamofobia, Periodismo, Ataque terrorista


Este artículo examina las representaciónes del Islam a través de un análisis cuantitativo de los titulares en el New York Times y el Wall Street Journal dos meses antes y después del ataque contra la revista Charlie Hebdo para comprender las manifestaciones de la islamofobia en los medios después de un ataque terrorista de alto perfil. Los resultados encontraron que la mayoría de los titulares analizados relacionaban el Islam y los musulmanes con los conflictos violentos. Aunque esta correlación se disparó en los días posteriores al ataque, los titulares anteriores también a menudo hacían referencia al Islam al informar sobre conflictos violentos, lo que indica una forma de islamofobia encubierta.
