Symbolic Victimization and Real World Fear.
Morgan, Michael
Human Communication Research, v9 n2 p146-57 Win 1983
Examines the relationship between victimization of characters in television drama and susceptibility to the viewers' cultivation of a sense of personal risk in the real world. Found that viewers whose fictional counterparts are more likely to be shown as victims show stronger associations between viewing and perceived vulnerability. (PD)
