Abstract:

The effects of source and user comments on perceptions of Weblog-embedded news reports were examined in the framework of hostile media effect. Source, one perceived by participants as agreeable and the other perceived as disagreeable, affected perceived biasedness of the news story and its perceived influence on others, but not perceived reach of the news. User comments attached to the embedded news story, one set agreeable and the other disagreeable to the issue position of participants, generated no effect on perceived biasedness, perceived influence on others, and perceived reach of the news. There was no interaction between source and user comments. A regression analysis revealed that source and perceived influence on others, but not perceived reach, were predictors of the bias perception. Social and theoretical implications of these findings were discussed and suggestions were made for future research.
