Abstract

This content analysis of religion news coverage in the People's Daily during a 10-year period (1996–2005) found a more positive tone toward religion after 2001, when a significant policy change was announced by Chinese political leaders. The number of newspaper articles about religion increased steadily. Under-representation of Christianity suggested by previous studies was not found, but a prejudicial tone toward different religions was identified.
