The Treatment and Resolution of Moral Violations on Soap Operas.
Sutherland, John C.; Siniawsky, Shelley J.
Journal of Communication, v32 n2 p67-74 Spr 1982
Analyzed episodes of "All My Children" and "General Hospital," as reported in the 1980 issues of "Soap Opera Digest." Found that moral violations tended to be resolved consistently with traditional moral standards. Suggests that criticisms of soap operas' effects on morals may not be totally warranted. (PD)
