dc.description.abstractThe following study is a content analysis on how online media covers pipeline failure in North America. It uses the Public Health Model of Reporting, Sourcing and Attribution Theory to answer questions related to the cause and consequences of pipeline failure. The content analysis looked at 112 articles from 2010 highlighting events and issues related to pipeline and infrastructure failure such as sewer collapses, water main breaks and sinkholes. The articles were coded for frequency of the various failures, consequences and causes. The story type and sources of all articles were also coded to determine if there were any relationships between the variables. Additional information was gathered relating to other criteria specific to online articles, such as the availability of photos and video and social media feedback.eng
