Newspapers give thumbs down to Government claims on ID cards
23 Apr 2009
National newspapers have portrayed Government policy on ID cards as illiberal, unsafe and being introduced by stealth according to a study published today.
The four-month snapshot of 280 newspaper articles and letters was carried out by Elisa Pieri, a researcher at The University of Manchester.
The study examined the coverage in four broadsheets and three tabloids, and all their Sunday editions.
It found that newspapers used a range of arguments to condemn the policy on ID cards. Humour and sarcasm were among the strategies used to undermine the arguments made by the Government.
