Distracted: The Effects of Online News Message Elements on Processing of Stereotype-Related Information About African-American Characters and Evaluations of News Messages

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



Abstract:

The study explored how individuals cognitively process stereotype-consistent and stereotype-inconsistent information about African-American characters depicted in online news stories presented with different types of distracting advertisements and how they evaluate the elements of online media messages. A 2 (Stereotype attribute) x 2 (Distraction) experiment indicated that participants failed to individuate African-American characters when news stories were presented on Web pages with highly distracting advertisements. In particular, in the condition of high distraction, participants relied on stereotypes in the recall of character attributes more then in the condition of low distraction. An interesting split between the recall of accurate information about story characters and assigning random stereotype-related traits has been also indicated. High message distraction led to more negative evaluations of Web pages while making no difference in the evaluations of story characters and story credibility judgments. The study findings are discussed and suggestions for future research are provided.
