Journal of Communication, v51 n4 p678-95 Dec 2001
Investigates factors related to two types of judgments (made by undergraduate students) that make up the third-person perception: media effects on others and effects on self. Tests separate path models to assess the antecedents and consequences of perceived media impact on self and others. Examines four key variables that may contribute to assessments of media impact.
