Media violence and aggression : science and ideology by Tom Grimes( Book )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 413 libraries worldwide
"Media Violence and Aggression: Science and Ideology provides a multimethod critique of the media violence/social aggression myth. It provides policy makers and students with information to understand why the media violence/social aggression hypothesis will not explain or predict how most people react to what they see and hear in the media. Authors Tom Grimes, James A. Anderson, and Lori Bergen take the reader through a history of media effects research, pointing out where that research has made claims that go beyond empirical evidence."--Jacket

Conceptions, characteristics and content : how journalists' role conceptions and the characteristics of media organizations influence the news by Lori A Bergen( Book )
2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
To examine how media content is influenced by journalists' role concepts and organizational characteristics, a study used data which was originally gathered from telephone interviews with 1,001 American journalists conducted between December 1982 and February 1983, and which served as the basis for "The American Journalist: a Portrait of U.S. News People and Their Work" by David H. Weaver and G. Cleveland Wilhoit. The content variable was determined by a content analysis of journalists' responses to several open-ended questions about a story that represented some of their "best work" from the previous year, employing Weaver and Wilhoit's content categories--disseminator, interpretive, and adversarial. Discriminant analysis was used to examine the variables of media type, organizational characteristics, journalists' role orientation, and individual characteristics which could predict membership in the content groups. Analysis revealed that organizational characteristics had a stronger influence in shaping the content produced than did journalists' conceptions of their own role, although other individual characteristics of journalists were also significant in discriminating among content categories. Organizational characteristics--especially the type of media organizations where journalists work and the size of those organizations--were strong predictors of content category. (Five tables of data are included and nine references are appended.) (Mm)

Roper Revisited: News Media Preferences from a Statewide Poll by Tony Rimmer( Book )
1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A secondary analysis of data from two Indiana Polls, the first carried out in January 1983 and the second in November and December 1983, was conducted to compare respondents' reports of their viewing of network television news and local television news, and their reading of local newspapers. The intent was to use respondents' preferred source for state news as opposed to national news sources used by the Roper polling organization in their surveys of media preferences. Since the literature indicated that responses favored television as the preferred news source for national news, it was questioned whether state news would be perceived as being like local news in which previous responses favored newspapers. A second intent was to determine whether any change favoring television would be more likely to appear in communities where television stations were located. Results revealed that Indiana respondents overwhelmingly preferred television, when compared with newspapers and radio, as a source of state news and politics. The hypothesis proposing distance from a television station as a predictor of news media preference was not supported. (Hod)
