Third-Person Perception of Television-Viewing Behavior.
Peiser, Wolfram; Peter, Jochen
Journal of Communication, v50 n1 p25-45 Win 2000
Investigates whether the third-person effect extends to perceptions of other people's television viewing, and whether it can be explained by a general tendency to underrate the education of others. Finds that people tended to perceive others as more inclined toward undesirable viewing behaviors, and that this third-person perception was stronger if the others were perceived to be less well educated.
