Violent Media Content: A Cross-Media, Longitundinal Analysis
Unformatted Document Text:  39 would project that it would contain approximately 70 violent acts, which is nearly identical to the other newscasts (CBS news = 70; CNN = 69). Since the 15 days of NBC news that were sampled contained 19 violent acts, such acts occurred at a rate of 1.27 per day in this newscast. We can predict that the 35 fewer days sampled from this newscast would contain an average of 1.27 acts per day, which would result in 44.33 more violent acts. Adding this number to the 19 that we did find for NBC news (in order to extend the time period to match that used for the other newscasts), we would project that it would contain approximately 63.33 violent acts, which is very similar to the other newscasts (CBS news = 70; CNN = 69; ABC projected 70). Finally, since the 10 days of Fox news that were sampled contained 13 violent acts, such acts occurred at a rate of 1.3 per day in this newscast. We can predict that the 40 fewer days sampled from this newscast would contain an average of 1.3 acts per day, which would result in 52 more violent acts. Adding this number to the 13 that we did find for Fox news (in order to extend the time period to match that used for the other newscasts), we would project that it would contain approximately 65 violent acts, which is very similar to the other newscasts (CBS news = 70; CNN = 69; ABC projected 70; NBC projected 63.33).

would project that it would contain approximately 70 violent acts, which is nearly
identical to the other newscasts (CBS news = 70; CNN = 69). Since the 15 days of NBC
news that were sampled contained 19 violent acts, such acts occurred at a rate of 1.27 per
day in this newscast. We can predict that the 35 fewer days sampled from this newscast
would contain an average of 1.27 acts per day, which would result in 44.33 more violent
acts. Adding this number to the 19 that we did find for NBC news (in order to extend the

contain approximately 63.33 violent acts, which is very similar to the other newscasts
