Abstract: A comparison between Belgian and Kenyan newspaper reports about the post-election crisis in Kenya shows that the same news events are reported from different frames of meaning. This is partly due to the differing worldviews these news discourses are based on and to the various perspectives from which the events are interpreted, resulting in different implicit meanings. Thus, while the Kenyan press focuses on the socio-political aspects of the conflicts involved, Belgian newspapers emphasize their ethnic aspect. Both views can be criticized. However, by combining interpretive analyses of newspaper language use with contextual explanations derived from ethnographic information, such as interviews or editorial guidelines, a better and more nuanced understanding of both national and international newspaper coverage can be reached.
