    Political Fact or Political Fiction? The Agenda-Setting Impact of the Political Fiction Series Borgen on the Public and News Media.Kim Andersen, Lotte Aalbers & Mark Boukes - 2022 - Communications 47 (1):50-72.
    Politicotainment and democratainment are concepts used to identify the relevance of popular culture for citizenship. Among the most prominent examples of these concepts are political fiction series. Merging political facts with fictional narratives, such series provide a unique opportunity to engage the audience with political matters in an entertaining way. But can these series also affect the agenda of the public and the news media? Based on aggregate-level data of Google search queries and news-media content, the current study examines the (...)

  2. Power of the People or the Expert? The Influence of Vox Pop and Expert Statements on News-Item Evaluation, Perceived Public Opinion, and Personal Opinion.Kathleen Beckers - 2022 - Communications 47 (1):114-135.
    Vox pops, interviews with ordinary people on the street, are one of the most common ways to represent public opinion in television news. Research found that they influence audience judgments more than static base-rate information such as poll results. However, little research has compared vox pops with vivified base-rate information. Most research studying vox pops assumed they are included in the news because of their apparent attractiveness and trustworthiness to audiences. Using a television news experiment comparing statistical base-rate information vivified (...)

    Brand in Focus: Activating Adolescents’ Persuasion Knowledge Using Disclosures for Embedded Advertising in Music Videos.Robert F. Cartwright, Suzanna J. Opree & Eva A. van Reijmersdal - 2022 - Communications 47 (1):93-113.
    Many artists and music labels rely on partnerships with brands to pay for the production costs of their music videos. In exchange, the brands are featured in those videos. To enhance the transparency of these embedded forms of advertising, sponsorship disclosures are required. However, it remains unknown what the content of these disclosures in music videos should be to enhance sponsor transparency for adolescents. We examined how disclosure type affected adolescents’ conceptual and attitudinal persuasion knowledge. In addition, effects on responses (...)

    The Effects of Constructive Television News Reporting on Prosocial Intentions and Behavior in Children: The Role of Negative Emotions and Self-Efficacy.Mariska Kleemans, Tobias Sachs & Iris van Venrooij - 2022 - Communications 47 (1):5-31.
    To reduce negative emotional responses and to stimulate prosociality, constructive journalism promotes the inclusion of positive emotions and solutions in news. This study experimentally tested whether including those elements indeed increased prosocial intentions and behavior among children, and whether negative emotions and self-efficacy are mediators in this regard. To this end, children were exposed to an emotion-based, solution-based, or non-constructive news video. Results showed that emotion-based and solution-based news reduced children’s negative emotions compared to non-constructive news. No direct effects for (...)

  5. New Perspective? Comparing Frame Occurrence in Online and Traditional News Media Reporting on Europe’s “Migration Crisis”.Marijn van Klingeren & Christian S. Czymara - 2022 - Communications 47 (1):136-162.
    News media have transformed over the last decades, there being increasing numbers of online news suppliers and an increase in online news consumption. We examine how reporting on immigration differs between popular German online and print media over three crucial years of the so-called immigration crisis from 2015 to 2017. This study extends knowledge on the framing of the crisis by examining a period covering the start, peak, and time after the intake of refugees. Moreover, we establish whether online and (...)

  8. “It is Their Job to Make Sure That the Long-Term Vision for the Show … Stays Intact”: Using Insights From the Television Format Industry to Rethink the Concept of Media Events.Michael Skey - 2022 - Communications 47 (1):32-49.
    The concept of media events continues to generate widespread debate among scholars around the globe. Studies that have challenged the concept’s functionalist foundations have undoubtedly sharpened our thinking. Conversely, approaches that have sought to expand the concept tend to confuse rather than clarify. In this paper, we argue that events that are planned, anticipated, and involve external organizations in their design demand a specific set of analytical tools. Furthermore, we draw a further distinction between one-off events and those that are (...)

    Exploring Adolescents’ Motives for Food Media Consumption Using the Theory of Uses and Gratifications.Heidi Vandebosch, Charlotte J. S. De Backer, Katrien Maldoy & Yandisa Ngqangashe - 2022 - Communications 47 (1):73-92.
    Food media have become a formidable part of adolescents’ food environments. This study sought to explore how and why adolescents use food media by focusing on selectivity and motives for consumption. We conducted in-depth, semi-structured interviews with 31 Flemish adolescents aged 12 to 16. Food media were both incidentally consumed and selectively sought for education, social utility, and entertainment. The levels of selectivity and motives for consumption varied among the different food media platforms. Incidental consumption was more prevalent with TV (...)
