“According to Gordon (2016, p. 171), “It is important to point out here that content analysis is about analyzing the images and words in the materials gathered, not the intentions of the person who produced those images or words, or in the interpretation of them by the people who see or hear them. Likewise, content analysis is also not able to measure the effect that the materials have on people or on the culture. Content analysts can only describe or count what they see and hear in the materials analyzed.”
