Abstract
Only few studies have investigated media coverage of one and the same election campaign in a cross-national, comparative perspective. This study takes the 2008 US Presidential election as a case and investigates the way it is covered in eight European countries. We explain differences in visibility, tone and framing by considering country characteristics, media features and temporal aspects. Results demonstrate that all three aspects determine campaign coverage to some extent, yet temporal aspects, and in particular the stage of the campaign and polling trends, are of considerable influence.
