Abstract
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas:
A Study of the Relationship Between Media Use and Anomie
in America’s Fastest Growing Town
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.
