  3. Online Music Recommendation Platforms as Representations of Ontologies of Musical Taste.Benjamin Krämer - 2018 - Communications 43 (2):259-281.
    The framework of the ‘social ontology of the internet’ is applied to music recommendation platforms. Those websites provide individual suggestions of music to users, creating new dynamics of taste that are no longer based on human-to-human interaction and verbalized judgments. An exemplary analysis of three platforms shows that different conceptions of musical tastes are represented by technical systems: situational emotional preferences, a formalist aesthetics, and social proximity based on tastes. The platforms share certain assumptions about the ontology of musical entities (...)

  4. The Effects of Visual Isolation on the Perception of Scandalized Politicians.Mark Ludwig & Christian von Sikorski - 2018 - Communications 43 (2):235-257.
    In their depictions of scandalized politicians, journalists frequently use news images that highlight the isolation of politicians. To test how this way of portraying political actors affects a recipient’s attitudes and his/her guilt perception toward such a scandalized politician an experiment was conducted. All participants were exposed to the identical textual information. However, the visual information was systematically altered. A multivariate analysis of covariance showed that participants – exposed to a visual highlighting the isolation of the politician – evaluated the (...)

  5. Framing Sálvame: Public Debates on Taste, Quality and Television in Spain.Óliver Pérez-Latorre, Mercè Oliva & Reinald Besalú - 2018 - Communications 43 (2):209-233.
    The main aim of this article is to analyze the social circulation of discourses on non-hegemonic cultural practices, in particular, on what is called “trash TV”, and how they are connected to struggles over cultural and social hierarchies. To do so, it takes a specific event as starting point: the injunction that the CNMC filed against Mediaset to adjust the contents of Sálvame Diario to the requirements of what is known as the “child protection time slot”. This paper uses constructionist (...)

  6. The Interactive Communication Process : A Model for Integrating Science, Academia, and Profession.Emma Rodero & Lluís Mas Manchón - 2018 - Communications 43 (2):173-207.
    A closer look at the three areas of action in communication permits us to conclude that the discipline faces a serious crisis. First, an epistemological review shows a fragmented body of theories. Secondly, there is a plurality of separate traditions within academia. Third, the professional field is technology-centered and lacks expertise since there is little connection between theory and practice. Our goal is to analyze the three-fold state of the discipline and to propose a conciliatory model. The Interactive Communication Process (...)

    Perpetrators’ Strategic Communication: Framing and Identity Building on Ethno-Nationalist Terrorists’ Websites.María Martín Villalobos, Arlinda Arizi, Natalia Angulo Mejía, Yulia An & Liane Rothenberger - 2018 - Communications 43 (2):133-171.
    The study explores communication strategies of ethno-nationalist terrorists with respect to their framing and identity building. Strategies of eight ethno-nationalist terrorist groups were analyzed using 70 articles published on the groups’ websites. Three cluster-analytic procedures and a correlational analysis were applied to strategies of problem definition, cause and responsibility attribution, treatment recommendations, and identity building. The analysis revealed various dimensions on which terrorists frame their content. No group-specific strategies of framing and identity building have been found yet, suggesting that the (...)

  9. Vox Pops in the News: The Journalists’ Perspective.Kathleen Beckers - 2018 - Communications 43 (1):101-111.
    Vox pops are a frequent and growing practice in the news. However, there seems to be a general tendency in journalistic practice to be quite critical about these interviews with the ordinary man on the street. Yet, hardly any research exists about journalists’ evaluation of vox pops or that has gone further than speculating about why they are used. This study tackles these research gaps using a survey involving 253 Belgian journalists. We conclude that vox pops are used mostly by (...)

    The Effect of Interaction Topic and Social Ties on Media Choice and the Role of Four Underlying Mechanisms.Daniëlle N. M. Bleize, Emiel J. Krahmer, Alexander P. Schouten, Marjolijn L. Antheunis & Emmelyn A. J. Croes - 2018 - Communications 43 (1):47-73.
    This study employed a scenario-based approach whereby participants were asked to choose which communication channel they prefer in certain situations. The first aim was to determine the effect of the topic of interactions and social ties on channel choice. The second aim was to examine the underlying mechanisms in the relation between interaction topic and social ties and channel choice. A questionnaire was administered among 238 participants, who were presented five communication scenarios with topics of low and high intimacy and (...)

    The Way Syrian Refugees in Turkey Use Media: Understanding “Connected Refugees” Through a Non-Media-Centric and Local Approach.Kevin Smets - 2018 - Communications 43 (1):113-123.
    This paper reports on an exploratory, qualitative study of media use among Syrian refugees in Turkey, focusing on two locations: a refugee camp in Sanliurfa and a community center in Istanbul. It seeks to provide new angles for conceptualizing the “connected refugee” by adopting a non-media-centric and ethnographic approach that emphasizes diversity, local contexts and everydayness. Firstly, the paper discusses the interplay between individual and collective ownership of media and ICTs, which is linked to certain power dynamics and an informal (...)

  15. Issue Ownership as a Determinant of Political Parties’ Media Coverage.Kirsten Van Camp - 2018 - Communications 43 (1):25-45.
    For many citizens, news media are the most important source of information about relevant political topics and actors. As a consequence, it is crucial to investigate who gains media coverage and why. Leaning on two classic news sourcing criteria, suitability and availability, we claim that issue owners can be seen as good news sources. By combining a content analysis of television news with data collected through a journalist survey, we investigate whether issue ownership is a determinant of political parties’ news (...)

  16. The Consequences of Being on the Agenda: The Effect of Media and Public Attention on Firms’ Stock Market Performance.Rens Vliegenthart & Toni G. L. A. van der Meer - 2018 - Communications 43 (1):5-24.
    This study applies agenda setting theory to understand how firms’ financial performance is affected by both the news media and the public agenda. Using content and time-series analysis for the data of five Dutch firms, we demonstrate that media attention and public attention for a firm affect stock market ratings. As hypothesized, the effect of media attention was found to be negative whereas the effect of public attention was positive.

    Bias Wanted! Examining People’s Information Exposure, Quality Expectations and Bias Perceptions in the Context of the Refugees Debate Among Different Segments of the German Population.Jens Wolling & Dorothee Arlt - 2018 - Communications 43 (1):75-99.
    The growing number of refugees entering Europe since 2015 has quickly ignited a heated public debate on refugees in Germany. Against the backdrop of the media’s information and opinion-forming function, this paper examines the importance of mainstream and social media among different segments of the German population. Applying cluster analysis to survey data, six clusters with specific attitude-behavior combinations concerning the refugee issue were identified: Pro-Refugee Activists, Passive-Affirmative Mainstream, Directly-Involved Ambivalents, Passive-Worried Mainstream, Worried Agitators, and Anti-Refugee Activists. The results show (...)
