Concept and goalThe content analysis of the press releases corresponds to the media content analyses of the press and television coverage during the 2009 and 2013 Bundestag election campaigns within the framework of the GLES. The analysis of the press releases contains similar constructs as the two media content analyses, so that a linkage of the data sets is possible, e.g. to investigate questions about mutual influences of media and parties.
