Television's Portrayal of the Environment: 1991-1995.
Shanahan, James; McComas, Katherine
Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, v74 n1 p147-59 Spr 1997
Finds that nature as a theme is completely absent in 80% and the outstanding theme in only 1.7% of television programming; not only less frequent, but separate from the dominant themes in prime-time; and treated as a sociopolitical "issue" (like "politics,""science,""religion," and "education"). Notes that frequency of attention to nature and environmental issues has dropped since 1991. (SR)
