This thesis explores issues concerning computer aided content analysis for newspaper articles. Articles relevant to the Japan Air Self Defense Force's new fighter support jet (code named FSX) were collected from three newspapers in the U.S. and Japan. These data were downloaded and stored in a PC then analyzed using word processing software. At the same time, three articles were selected and distributed, along with relevant survey questions, to over 150 people. The survey was intended to examine the readers' responses to those articles. The results from the questionnaire and computer aided content analysis were analyzed, summarized and compared. These complementary studies were conducted to help determine whether computer aided content analysis could identify the information and impressions conveyed by these newspaper articles. The results of this complementary effort indicate that additional work is needed, particularly in software development, to make computer aided content analysis more useful. However, the results also showed the complexities of conveying and interpreting information.
