Knobloch, Silvia; Carpentier, Francesca Dillman; Zillmann, Dolf
Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, v80 n1 p91-108 Spr 2003
Notes that an Internet newsmagazine was created to ascertain effects of three dimensions of news salience - magnitude, likelihood, and immediacy of events - on selective news exposure. Notes that undergraduate students sampled articles, and their selective exposure was automatically recorded. Finds that independent manipulation of salience dimensions resulted in increased exposure to associated articles for all three dimensions. (SG)
