The Operation of the Moral Panic Button in the Media, and the Experimental Testing of the Applied Datamining Technology

The aim of the project is to analyze the operation of the moral panic button (a centrally organized long-term manipulation technology) in the media. First we would develop further an already existing database (containing about 65 000 migration related articles), and using standard and NLP techniques to analyze it. Moreover, we plan to have methodological experiments to test the validity of data mining in the media.
