How people think about poverty is shown to be dependent on how the issue is framed. When news media presentations frame poverty as a general outcome, responsibility for poverty is assigned to society-at-large; when news presentations frame poverty as a particular instance of a poor person, responsibility is assigned to the individual. Similar framing effects are documented in the General Social Survey where the amount of public assistance deemed appropriate for a poor family varies with the description of the family.

Media Discourse and Public Opinion on Nuclear Power: A Constructionist Approach

Framing is the process by which a communication source constructs and defines a social or political issue for its audience. While many observers of political communication and the mass media have discussed framing, few have explicitly described how framing affects public opinion. In this paper we offer a theory of framing effects, with a specific focus on the psychological mechanisms by which framing influences political attitudes. We discuss important conceptual differences between framing and traditional theories of persuasion that focus on belief change. We outline a set of hypotheses about the interaction between framing and audience sophistication, and test these in an experiment. The results support our argument that framing is not merely persuasion, as it is traditionally conceived. We close by reflecting on the various routes by which political communications can influence attitudes.

Media discourse and public opinion are treated as two parallel systems of constructing meaning. This paper explores their relationship by analyzing the discourse on nuclear power in four general audience media: television news coverage, newsmagazine accounts, editorial cartoons, and syndicated opinion columns. The analysis traces the careers of different interpretive packages on nuclear power from to the present. This media discourse, it is argued, is an essential context for understanding the formation of public opinion on nuclear power. More specifically, it helps to account for such survey results as the decline in support for nuclear power before Three Mile Island, a rebound after a burst of media publicity has died out, the gap between general support for nuclear power and support for a plant in one's own community, and the changed relationship of age to support for nuclear power from to the present.

 Танкадо не посмеет этого сделать! - воскликнула.  - Уничтожить всю нашу секретную информацию? - Сьюзан не могла поверить, что Танкадо совершит нападение на главный банк данных АНБ.

Сьюзан прищурилась. Ты сам отлично знаешь, что происходит. - А ну-ка пропусти меня, Грег, - сказала.  - Мне нужно в туалет. Хейл ухмыльнулся, но, подождав еще минуту, отошел в сторону.

 О Боже, - прошептал.  - Ну и мерзавец этот Танкадо. ГЛАВА 110 Невидящими глазами Джабба смотрел на распечатку, которую ему вручила Соши. Он побледнел и вытер рукавом пот со лба. - Директор, у нас нет выбора.

Иногда она видела в нем что-то от Дэвида.

Чатрукьян знал: это первое, чего в любом случае потребует Стратмор. Выглянув в пустую шифровалку, он принял решение. На загрузку программы и поиск вируса уйдет минут пятнадцать. Скажи, что ничего нет, - прошептал.  - Абсолютно .

 Вот. Она нахмурилась. - Ты не заметил ничего. Ну, может, дошел какой-нибудь слушок. - Мидж, послушай .

 Неужели из Майорки.
