    Being Media Literate About Media Policy, a Bridge Too Far in Flanders/Belgium.Leo Van Audenhove, Ilse Mariën, Anne-Sofie Vanhaeght, Eline Livémont & Karen Donders - 2021 - Communications 46 (1):52-73.
    Media use can empower people, provided that this is accompanied by a deeper understanding of the actors, processes and structures in the media sector – including media policy. It is, however, to be expected that media users’ literacy of media policy is rather limited. This is problematic as the absence of such understanding makes it impossible for citizens to hold the politicians they elected accountable for the media policy they develop. This article explores what media users know about media policy, (...)

    The Democratic Quality of Political Depictions in Fictional TV Entertainment. A Comparative Content Analysis of the Political Drama Borgen and the Journalistic Magazine Berlin Direkt.Peter Bienhaus, Olaf Jandura & Cordula Nitsch - 2021 - Communications 46 (1):74-94.
    The quality of political reporting in the news media is a focal point of communication research. Politics, however, is not only conveyed via traditional sources of information, but via fictional sources. In particular, political dramas enjoy great popularity and are often acknowledged for their realistic depiction of politics. Still, little is known about the democratic quality of such fictional depictions. This paper aims to fill the gap by contrasting the depiction of politics in the fictional TV series Borgen with political (...)

    “Not How Much, but How.” Contextualizing the Presentation of Violence Broadcast on Television: Normativity and Narrative Genres.Concepción Fernández-Villanueva, María Celeste Dávila & Juan Carlos Revilla - 2021 - Communications 46 (1):4-26.
    The analysis of TV violence cannot be limited to the quantification of its incidence, but should also take into account the type of violence broadcast and its context. Thus, normative models of violence could be understood as positive, while contra-normative models of violence should be of far greater concern. This paper analyzes the normative contexts of TV violence through a content analysis of randomly selected fragments of TV programming. The results show that news programs and TV series/soaps delegitimized violence to (...)

    In Medias Res – the Mediation Conundrum.Samuel Mateus - 2021 - Communications 46 (1):95-112.
    It was not until the emergence, in the 19th century, of new technical devices – such as the telegraph and the phonograph – that the term medius came to serve as a collective noun for advanced communication technologies. Although mediation is extensively theorized in philosophy and sociology, and is approached by medium theory and media studies, the concept remains undertheorized in the field of communication theory.By exploring the problem of mediation and by challenging its representationalist and transmissive accounts, this paper (...)

  8. Like-Minded and Cross-Cutting Talk, Network Characteristics, and Political Participation Online and Offline: A Panel Study.Christian von Sikorski, Franziska Marquart & Jörg Matthes - 2021 - Communications 46 (1):113-126.
    We test the role of like-minded and cross-cutting political discussion as a facilitator of online and offline political participation and examine the role of strong versus weak network ties. Most prior research on the topic has employed cross-sectional designs that may lead to spurious relationships due to the lack of controlled variables. The findings of a two-wave panel survey controlling the autoregressive effects suggest that cross-cutting talk with weak ties significantly dampens online but not offline political participation. However, no such (...)

    Beyond Empowerment, Experimentation and Reasoning: The Public Discourse Around the Quantified Self Movement.Piet Simon, Susan Alpen & Andreas Hepp - 2021 - Communications 46 (1):27-51.
    This article presents the results of a discourse analysis of press coverage on the Quantified Self movement in the German and British press between 2007 and 2018. The analysis is driven by two questions: What discursive patterns can be discerned within this coverage? And, what characterizes the translation of the experimental practices and imaginaries of this pioneer community into an overall societal reflection of deep mediatization? In essence, the article shows that the QS movement becomes a ‘general signifier’ for a (...)

    The Differential Effects of Related and Unrelated Emotions on Judgments About Media Messages.Werner Wirth, Claudia Poggiolini & Rinaldo Kühne - 2021 - Communications 46 (1):127-149.
    The present study investigated the influence of related and unrelated emotions on judgments about a news article. An experimental study was designed to manipulate both the relatedness of an elicited emotion to the news article and processing depth. Following mood and emotion effects theory, related anger was expected to have a stronger effect on judgments about the media message than unrelated anger. Processing depth was expected to moderate this effect. The results showed a main effect of relatedness and a main (...)
