Hate Speech and Its Harms: A Communication Theory Perspective.
Calvert, Clay
Journal of Communication, v47 n1 p4-19 Win 1997
Uses J.W. Carey's transmission and ritual communication models to illustrate harms caused by hate speech. Examines legal precedent for the ritual model, but suggests that courts more often adopt the transmission model. Argues that, although the ritual model points to a different, long-term harm caused by hate speech, its adoption raises troubling First Amendment issues. (SR)
