Abstract:

A survey of 363 Las Vegas residents examined the relationship between their media use and anomie. The analysis also controlled for several demographic variables. The goal was to determine how media use affects feelings of anomie. Anomie was measured with Srole's classic scale of anomie. Several modes of media were examined. The findings show that print media use tended to alleviate feelings of anomie. Broadcast media had mixed effects on anomie. Under some demographic conditions, broadcast media use reduced the feeling of anomie and under other conditions it engendered it. Newer forms of media such as e-mail, use of the world wide web, and webTV had no effect on anomie. Playing computer games and watching satellite television, however, were associated with increased feelings of anomie.
