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



Abstract:

This study examines the effect of the incidental new exposures of the Internet and television on political knowledge and participation. Using US national data from an online survey, this study found incidental news exposure of the Internet to be positively and significantly associated with political knowledge, and online and offline political participation. This effect is fully mediated by political discussion. In contrast, incidental news exposure of television was not associated with knowledge or participation.
