Abstract: The nation has always concerned with issues in the news. Among such concerns are murder trials. They seem to sweep the nation with magnificent force. One such trial was the case against Orenthal James Simpson in the murders of his ex-wife. Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald L. Goldman. More people watched this trial than any other reported trial. Television, newspapers, and magazines covered every aspect of the trial. Each, of course, covered it in a different way. But did anyone stop to question whether or not they were gaining the same information from their regional newspaper as their national one? The following study seeks to answer the above question. Regional and national coverage may have been quite different in the trial of O.J. Simpson.
