Abstract

In 2007-2008, when food prices started to increase dramatically, purchasing power parity of consumers started to decrease automatically. High food prices were argued to cause poverty, hunger, and food riots among urban populations. Henceforward, ‘food crisis’ became a new story line on the current debate. This paper analyzes different media coverage of urban consumers and rural producers under changes in relative incomes for the 2000-2013 period and propounds media bias on the food crisis debate by using content analysis and OLS regression model.
