Framing Effects of Television News Coverage of Social Protest.
McLeod, Douglas M.; Detenber, Benjamin H.
Journal of Communication, v49 n3 p3-23 Sum 1999
Compares levels of status quo support in three television news stories of a single protest event. Finds that status quo support had significant effects on undergraduate viewers, leading them to be: more critical of, and less likely to identify with, the protesters; less critical of the police; and less likely to support the protesters' expressive rights.
