  • TITLE: The Perfect Communication Storm: News Coverage of the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act

    AUTHORS: Tucker-McLaughlin Mary, Jin-Ae Kang

    KEYWORDS: Health Care, Reform, Obama, PPACA, Framing Television News, News Releases

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Political Science, Vol.9 No.2, March 14, 2019

    ABSTRACT: This study contributes a historical perspective to communication that surrounds health care policy. The importance of the role of media in the establishment of public policy is highlighted, as well as an administration’s ability to educate the media and public about proposed legislation. Using content analysis, the researchers examined how White House news releases and television news stories represented the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) from its initial discussion in January 2009 through March of 2012. The results showed neither the White House news releases, nor the network television news stories provided the public with a comprehensive outline of the PPACA. Both the Obama administration and the media presented the PPACA as an important current issue, but both failed to define it in ways that made the legislation accessible to the public. The lack of definitive information created confusion for the public and this health care policy remains a controversial piece of legislation which has been threatened with repeal.
