Spiral of cynicism : the press and the public good by Joseph N Cappella( )

21 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 1,863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Spiral of Cynicism, Joseph N. Cappella and Kathleen Hall Jamieson provide the first conclusive evidence that voter cynicism is indeed fueled by the manner in which the print and broadcast media cover political events and issues. The media's heavy focus on the game of politics, rather than on its substance, starts the spiral of cynicism that erodes citizen interest. By observing voters who watched and read different sets of reports for both a recent mayoral race in Philadelphia and the national health care reform debate - some saturated in strategy talk, others focused on the real issues - the authors show clear links between the ways in which the media cover campaigns and levels of voter cynicism

Smoking-related self-concepts and value expressive messages : effects on the determinants of smoking cessation by Dina Shapiro-Luft( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first study uses a cross-sectional design to describe the relationship between the smoking-related self-concepts and the determinants of smoking cessation. The second study pilot tests messages with ASC and SSC frames and examines their priming and persuasion effects. The third study explores value priorities among smokers and identifies values with the highest and lowest priority. The fourth and fifth studies pilot test ASC and SSC frame messages with values content to ensure that the messages adequately express their respective values. The final study is a web-based survey experiment with a two frame (SSC x ASC) by two value (high priority vs low priority) design with a no message control group
Media in the middle : fairness and accuracy in the 1994 health care reform debate( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to better understand the role of media in the health care debate, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation funded the Annenberg Public Policy Center to track the debate in newspapers, television, and radio from January 16 to October, 1994. The resultant study's investigators were Kathleen Hall Jamieson and Joseph N. Cappella. On July 18, 1994, the Annenberg Public Policy's Center Media Watch sponsored and videorecorded a conference at the National Press Club on the role of advertising in the debate

The origins of human interaction by Joseph N Cappella( Book )

4 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the field of communication studies the preeminent forms of explanation of human behavior have been the social and psychological, but biological origins may be as important to understanding human communication as are social origins. Communication research suggests a biological basis for certain patterns of adult interaction. Although these patterns of interaction do not exhaust all or even the most important aspects of human interaction, there is ample evidence that they are functionally important to the adult and to the infant-adult relationship. The patterns of interaction may even be the mechanism for defining caretaker-infant bonding. An appreciation of the intricate relationship between social and biological behavior and the common biological bases of human communication is one result of looking for the biological sources of ultimate causation for patterns of human communication. The emphasis on learning, culture, and socialization, the emphasis on higher-level cognitive processes and on highly deliberate linguistic exchanges have had a central place in the study of human communication. But it is time to recognize that part of what makes communication human is its biological commonness across peoples and even species. (One hundred-and-two references are attached.) (Rs)

Slicing the Attitude Pie A Validity and Reliability Study of a New Attitude Assessment Technique by James Lull( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper introduces a new measure of attitude, the "attitude pie," which attempts to separate true neutrality from degree of indifference while providing an evaluation score on the issue being judged. A large reliability-validity study involving ten attitude traits, four different methods, and over one hundred subjects at three different times was undertaken. Results from the study indicated that the reliabilities of both the salience and positivity scores of the attitude pies behave acceptably as compared to Semantic Differentials, Likerts, and Rank Importance procedures. Similarly the validity of the positivity scores is roughly comparable to that of the Semantic Differentials and Likert scales for evaluation. On the basis of the evidence from this study it was concluded that the attitude pie is at least as useful a tool in assessing group positivity and group indifference as either Semantic Differential or Likert methods.

The evaluation of a mass media campaign to promote exclusive breastfeeding in Vietnam by Danielle Amani Naugle( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation explores whether a mass media campaign, comprised of two television spots promoting exclusive breastfeeding (EBF), was successful in changing EBF behavior when implemented alone and when implemented in conjunction with other media materials, the training of service providers, and the establishment of a franchise network of infant and young child feeding counseling centers. The data were collected at five waves in four provinces of Vietnam through a three-stage cluster sampling methodology for a total of 11,277 face-to-face interviews with mothers of infants under the age of six months. Although the same individuals were not interviewed over time, the same 118 communes were sampled at each wave. The core analyses explore the longitudinal effects of commune level exposure on commune level EBF. Commune level EBF rates never differed significantly from baseline in mass media only communes. In franchise communes, however, EBF rates improved sharply (from 24% before to 55% after). Further longitudinal analyses indicate that communes that were going to be high in exposure after the campaign began experienced significantly greater overtime increases in EBF than communes that were going to be low in exposure. Mediation analyses suggest that, in franchise communes, the mass media campaign had an effect by driving women to franchise centers to seek additional IYCF support and that appears to have had an effect on EBF behavior. Moderation analyses suggest that exposure to the mass media campaign did not, for the most part, have differential effects on EBF behavior among mothers of younger infants compared to mothers of older infants, first-time mothers as compared to experienced mothers, and mothers with more versus less education. From the studies that comprise this dissertation, we can conclude that: 1) Mass media alone, in the format of two 30-second spots, was not effective in changing EBF behavior in Vietnam; 2) Where other intervention strategies were implemented alongside mass media, the mass media campaign led to greater EBF behavior change; 3) In geographic areas where the intervention was comprised of multiple components, the mass media campaign had effects through a process of social diffusion
Viewer-generated comments to online health policy news : content, dynamics, and influence by Rui Shi( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New media has changed people's experience with news. News readers nowadays encounter both selective opinions from elite sources and comments from anonymous strangers. The question is: how do people simultaneously process these two types of information? This dissertation selects a health policy, namely the cigarette graphic warning label (GWL) policy, locates online news reports on the major developments of the GWL policy, examines the content and dynamics of the public deliberation on the comment boards for these news articles, and explores the social consequences of such deliberation on news readers. A computerized content analysis was first conducted on user-generated comments following GWL news articles and results showed the majority of the comments were relevant to the issue under debate and argumentative and thus qualified as public deliberation. Comments were predominantly against GWL, and the most prevalent argument was the danger of government infringing on personal life. Three thematic frames emerged from the coding of arguments in comments: the legitimacy of the policy, the effectiveness of the GWL, and the presentational features of the labels. An experiment was then conducted to test the effect of news and comments on readers' attitude and behavior. Readers of oppositional comments showed significantly lower level of policy support than those who read no comment or supportive comments. News story elicited the highest level of policy support when only the basic facts of the policy but none of the argumentative themes was covered. Comments outperformed news in shaping readers' thought diversity such that comments could stimulate people to think more when news is narrow, and limit people to think less when news is thorough. Political ideology interacted with comment valence to influence participation such that conservatives tend to post comments if the opinion climate is overly positive, but liberals did not show interest in posting when the opinion climate is overly negative. Comments are a distorted reflection of public opinion. Content analysis found only 10% of the comments expressed any form of support for the GWL policy while 61% of the experiment participants indicated they were in favor of the policy
Mammography exemplars in online news commentary: prevalence of exemplars, effects on risk perceptions and mammography intentions, and mechanisms of action by Holli Hitt Seitz( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study adds to evidence suggesting that comments appearing with news articles have effects on readers. Those who share content online and allow user-generated comments should consider potential effects before allowing comments to be posted
