 Discursive imbalance and deficiency in intercultural news communication
Bo Shan and Lijun Wan

Intercultural news communication has become increasingly common in our current era of globalization. But why are certain topics and certain modes of speech adopted in news making rather than others, leading to discursive imbalance? Why are alternative modes of communication often excluded when news travels from one culture to another, causing discursive deficiency? We take a constructivist approach in this paper to examine intercultural news discourse, using examples from previous research and especially from reports on a controversial canine regulation in Beijing in 2006. By analyzing selected news accounts from both Chinese and American media, we attempt to elucidate the discursive power processes involved in this case and draw general lessons about intercultural news communication overall.

Keywords: intercultural news communication; discursive imbalance; discursive deficiency; discourse analysis
