Climate on Cable: The Effects of Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC on Global Warming Beliefs and Perceptions

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



Abstract:

This study uses survey data from a nationally representative sample of U.S. adults to examine the relationship between different forms of cable news use (i.e., Fox News vs. CNN and MSNBC) and various beliefs and perceptions about global warming. Looking across six different outcome measures, consistent evidence is found for a negative association between Fox News use and certainty of and concern about global warming, even after controlling for numerous potential confounding factors. Conversely, viewing CNN and MSNBC is associated with higher levels of conviction and concern about global warming. Further analyses reveal that the observed relationships between cable news use (both Fox News and CNN/MSNBC) and global warming perceptions and beliefs are stronger among conservative-Republicans than among liberal-Democrats. The relationships between cable news use and global warming beliefs and perceptions are also found to be more pronounced among low global warming information seekers, relative to high information seekers.
