This study compared the coverage of international news on Japanese and United States network evening newscasts. Support was found for the hypothesis that both countries' newscasts would carry more national news than international news. But, contrary to expecta tions, neither country's newscasts devoted more attention to conflictive than non-conflictive international news. Nor was there evidence to suggest that developing countries were reported in a more conflictive manner than that of developed countries in either country's newscasts.
