Abstract:

A paradigm that frames most protests as “police versus protesters” and that generally deligitmizes protests has been identified in studies of news coverage of social movements. The current study used an experimental design to examine the influence of photographic framing, social issue, and prior attitudes toward protests and protesters in general on evaluations of protesters and social issues in the stimulus materials. Results indicated that evaluations of protests and protesters portrayed in fictitious news stories varied according to the issue and that visual framing affected those evaluations only for one issue. Prior attitudes toward protests and protesters were not predictive of evaluations of the protests or protesters portrayed in the news stories. Findings suggest the need to address possible nuances associated with the social issue as well as visuals alone when examining effects of news coverage of social movements and protests.
