Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Punitive attitudes about crime and criminals has been the focus of much previous research. While the impact of various media sources has previously been examined, these studies tend to focus on the frequency of media usage or on the primary source of crime news information. Using survey data collected at a state university in the Western United States, this paper will examine the impact of media usage frequency as well as views and perceptions of the quality/reliability of media crime coverage on punitive attitudes. The results will add to the body of knowledge regarding punitive attitudes as well as the growing body of literature regarding media usage and its effects.
