Abstract

The purpose of this study is to incorporate various theoretical approaches in international communication research into the world system theory and to test this model within a comparative design based on the data collected from six countries. The results show that core nations in the world system often dominate the flow of news and coverage in international communication. If an equation can be used, one core country covered in international news would be equal to two semi-peripheral countries and about seven peripheral nations.
