Journal of Broadcasting and Electronic Media, v35 n4 p465-86 Fall 1991
This study analyzed four characteristics of political commercials to determine their impact on television viewers' reactions: (1) issue versus image strategies; (2) attack versus support appeals; (3) presence and absence of music; and (4) visual content, either with families or in professional campaign settings. Memory measures and attitudes are also examined. (45 references) (LRW)
