Moral language in newspaper commentary: A Kohlbergian analysis

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 18 (1):29 – 43 (2003)
This study begins with the question of whether the press is conveying messages that help readers in their moral development. Using a Kohlbergian model, this study explores the question by analyzing the moral language in columns and letters to the editor from three Oregon newspapers. The study's content analysis reveals that most arguments presented in the opinion section of the three papers are done so at either Kohlberg's preconventional or conventional levels
