Media Coverage and Public Opinion on Scientific Controversies.
Mazur, Allan
Journal of Communication, v31 n2 p106-15 Spr 1981
Examines the relationship of media coverage and public opinion in scientific controversy. A survey of coverage of controversies arising regarding sociobiology, water fluoridation, nuclear power and the Three Mile Island disaster indicates that the media play an active role in shaping and constructing controversy rather than just reporting it.
