Project Description

Summary:  View help for Summary Database of press releases about climate change (~20% systematic sample from PR Newswire) from 1985 to 2013. Press releases are matched with publicly-available data about the size (employees, assets, and revenue) of the primary organization that produced the press release, taken from the OneSource, Business Source Complete, and GuideStar databases. Finally, press releases are matched with information on whether the press release was quoted or paraphrased in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, or USA Today from 1985 to 2014. These variables were generated by the author using the WCopyFind plagiarism-detection software.

For more details on sampling and inclusion/exclusion of press releases, see Wetts, Rachel, "Models and Morals: Elite-Oriented and Value-Neutral Discourse Dominates American Organizations' Framings of Climate Change,"
