July issue of the International Journal of Press/Politics out now
The July 2015 issue of the International Journal of Press/Politics is now out.
It includes a series of original research articles on news media and political communication, including analysis of—
- Politicians’ view of the media’s agenda-setting power, which is seen as massive when it comes to symbolic issues, but minimal when it comes to more substantial issues.
- “Below the line” comment fields on newspaper websites, which at least at the Guardian are much better than their reputation.
- The “echo chamber” effects by which anti-government news coverage reinforces pre-existing negative attitudes towards government.
