Structural Effects of TV Coverage on Political Agendas.
Williams, Wenmouth, Jr.; Semlak, William D.
Journal of Communication, v28 n4 p114-19 Fall 1978
Presents a study to determine the effects of inherent structural dimensions of network television news, such as story placement and visual treatment, on campaign agendas as perceived by their audiences. Results suggest that some inherent structural biases in the coverage of the 1976 campaign produced nonpurposive effects in perceptions of the issues. (JMF)
