Abstract:

Our knowledge of the possible role of the media in peace and reconciliation processes is so far based on media content analyses, public opinion polls and even, indirectly, through experimental designs assessing framing effects. What is so far missing is a long-term empirical analysis of actual media coverage of the peace process on the public’s attitudes toward peace. This study attempts to provide such an analysis of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and the attitudes toward peace among Israelis. It shows that actual levels of aggregate support for the Oslo agreement are highly predicted by media framing, even after controlling for the actual status of the process. Yet, as predicted by prospect theory, the destructive effects of negative media coverage on the public support for peace are considerably stronger than the positive effects of supportive information. Responses to media framing are generally rational, although some automatic responses were detected as a consequence of the activation of associative networks.
