RODRIGUEZ, Pablo  and  JIVKOVA SEMOVA, Dimitrina. The Nuclear Crisis in North Korea: Sky News or Fox News. Palabra Clave [online]. 2014, vol.17, n.3, pp.854-874. ISSN 0122-8285.

The information provided by News Corporation's two 24-hour news channels: Sky News and Fox News, concerning the North Korean nuclear crisis during April 9 -23, 2013 is examined in this paper from the standpoint of the framing theory. The authors focus on aspects such as "Foxificación", the presence of military experts on news programs, and the diversity of frameworks for the news. In the case of Sky News, information is made available through the prism of national events, given the time devoted to the controversy with the BBC's "Panorama" program. Treatment of the nuclear crisis on Fox News translates into constant criticism of North Korea's military policy and patriotic exaltation of the United States, with emphasis on the defense system, all cloaked in fierce criticism of the Obama Administration for not promoting military intervention in the conflict.

Keywords : nuclear crisis; discourse; framing; sky News; Fox News.
