Exploring the Margins of Television Viewing.
Foss, Karen A.; Alexander, Alison F.
Communication Reports, v9 n1 p61-67 Win 1996
Examines those at the margins of television viewing (self-defined heavy viewers and non-viewers who neither own nor watch television) in order to understand how these groups situate television in their lives. Finds that both populations address themes of motivation, consequences, and importance but choose different actions based on those constructions. (SR)
