To compare how different Chinese newspapers and American newspapers frame the issue of Google’s withdrawal from China, I choose China Daily and the New York Times as representatives, adopting an inductive framing analysis method in this research. I systematically choose twenty percent of articles covering the issue from their official website and analyze metaphors, exemplars, catchphrases, depictions in the articles. Moreover, I discuss how ideology, ownership, economic structures, and shareholders influence the framing process as crucial factors.
