Children and television violence by Timothy P Meyer( Book )
2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The question of whether violence depicted on television causes viewers to act aggressively is meaningless because it implies a simple "yes" or "no" response. Effects of mass media depend on the types of viewers and content as well as the conditions of message reception. Television violence can affect the behavior of children on some occasions. Studies of media violence have revealed one or more of three general effects. First, children can learn violent acts through observation but will or will not tend to imitate them depending on whether the violent acts are perceived as rewarding or not. Second, media content can increase the likelihood of aggressive behavior by the viewer if he is predisposed to aggression by feelings of anger toward another person. Finally, however, the viewing of violence can reduce the likelihood of aggressive behavior if the content provides some form of catharsis for the angered viewer or if it does not provide positive reinforcement for aggressive action. The proportion of children affected by television violence has yet to be determined, but such program content seems to be doing far more harm than good. (Rn)
The Limits of Functional Analysis in the Study of Mass Communication by James A Anderson( Book )
1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The fundamental limits of the functional approach to the study of mass communication are embodied in two of its criticisms. The first weakness is in its logical structure and the second involves the limits that are set by known methods. Functional analysis has difficulties as a meaningful research perspective because the process of mass communication is unusually complex; it does not meet the rigorous assumption of linearity in causal relationships that is essential to establishing the rules in the functional model. Functional analysis, therefore, as it applies to the operation of the mass media as a social system, is useful in only a limited sense. It gives an explanation for the major components of a system, how the information flows within the system, and how influence within and between components operates. The uses and gratifications approach can clarify some of the limitations of the functional approach, but some questions must still be answered before the utility of the uses and gratifications theory can be estimated. Functional aealysis and uses and gratifications theory have explained some of the effects that can occur, but little is known about the range of uses and gratifications that do occur. Although the sociology of communication has been essentially functionalist to date, it is time to look elsewhere. (Jf)

Preschoolers and Political Socialization: Television and the 1976Campaign by Timothy P Meyer( Book )
3 editions published between 1976 and 1978 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This study deals with three questions concerning the political socialization of young children: (1) at what age evidence of political socialization begins to emerge; (2) at what age media, principally television, begins to socialize children politically; and (3) how a Presidential election campaign and the media relate to other sources of political socialization such as schools, peers, and parents. Fifty-two 4- and 5-year-old preschool children were interviewed prior to the 1976 election campaign and on the day after the election in order to measure their awareness of candidates and others involved in the campaign. It was hypothesized that: (1) children's awareness of political candidates would increase significantly from pre- to post-campaign; (2) 5-year-olds would show significantly more learning than 4-year-olds; and (3) that parents would be the most frequently mentioned source of political information. Results showed that 5-year-olds learned more than 4-year-olds; and that television was a more important source of political information about Jimmy Carter than parents for 5-year-olds, while parents and television were equally important as sources of information about President Ford. Results also indicated that females learned more than males and that Ford was better known than Carter at the start of the campaign but that children were more aware of Carter than Ford by the time the campaign was over.
