Abstract

This study examines media agenda and attention in Israel, as they were reflected and constructed in the elite Haaretz and popular Yedioth Ahronoth and Israel Hayom dailies as of October 2018until the three election campaigns of 2019-2020. Using quantitative content analysis, we examine the extent to which election campaigns have an impact on the stability of the presentation of public policy issues in the media and on the variety of issues the media cover. This was done by considering the ideological and journalistic orientations of each of the three newspapers as well.Findings show that of the three election campaigns, only in the September 2019 elections(perceived as a "close race") did the agenda of the three newspapers become less stable and less diverse. Thus, the very occurrence of an external political event (e.g., an election campaign)does not necessarily cause media attention to be more focused on that event. Media attention will experience stabilization and focus during election campaigns, only when news outlets perceive these elections as critical.
