A content analysis of the coverage of European Union stories in British daily newspapers. Three months of newspapers were scanned an a daily basis and their pro and anti stance monitored. Includes an analysis of websites. The results show that for both hardcopy newspapers and their online equivalents the anti‐European press is passionate in its beliefs, whereas the pro‐European press largely solid but unexciting in theirs. Concludes with the view that in political and newspaper speak Europe is just not a ‘heart’ issue.
