This study investigates how American and Russian media portrayed Russian punk band Pussy Riot's 2012 protest act in a Moscow cathedral, the trial and sentencing and subsequent newsworthy events. By conducting a textual analysis of coverage from Russia's Pravda and the United States' The New York Times relating to the band's actions – beginning with this particular protest act (February 2012) and ending with the protest at the Sochi Olympics (February 2014)– this study shows how each country's media portrayed the band. The results are then analyzed through the context of framing theory.
