"Ideologically Extreme Political News and the News Grazer: Does Ideological News Reduce the Mediating Effects of Public Discourse?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association, Marriott Wardman Park, Omni Shoreham, Washington Hilton, Washington, DC, Sep 01, 2005 <Not Available>. 2019-11-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p41658_index.html>

Abstract: This research assesses the effects of ideological political news on television viewers. It is grounded in a theory of “news grazing” suggesting that viewing public gather less political news, at intermittent intervals, and often in a distracted state. We first report survey data indicating that news grazers now constitute approximately 60 percent of the American public, and this number appears to be increasing. Compared to news consumers of the past, the majority of today’s TV news watchers are less apt to watch news they consider uninteresting. In order to adapt to this trend in a fragmented news environment, many television news providers created news products that are more entertaining and compelling than the more standard traditional media. We then report results from an experiment assessing the behavioral effects of ideological news, one network adaptation to the news grazing trend. Our experiment assesses the impact of ideologically charged programs like the O’Reilly Factor on viewers’ perceptions of political opposition. Notably, does ideological news promote ideological stereotyping, a perception of wider and more conflicting differences between ideological classes. Our experimental results offer little evidence of an ideological stereotyping effect, but we do find that exposure to this type of news promotes a larger perceived ideological gap between political elites.

On ideal points, ideological cleavages, and legislative behavior in Brazil" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association, Palmer House Hotel, Chicago, IL, Apr 12, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-11-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p198115_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: In this paper I show that ideal points estimated from observed legislative behavior in Brazil reveal a pro vs. anti government dimension rather than an ideological cleavage. I then propose a method to retrieve ideological positions from survey data and discuss how ideology and observed behavior relate to each other. The paper documents the relative stability of the ideological structure of Brazilian parties, but also shows that ideology has wanned as a determinant of legislator behavior.

Abstract: This essay explores the rhetorical strategies used by the North American Man Boy/Love Association (NAMBLA) website to advocate a normalized ideology of love and intimacy in man/boy relationships. The authors employ an ideological critique in order to uncover how the organization presents itself as an advocacy organization committed to social justice for sexually oppressed individuals. Furthermore, the NAMBLA organization functions as a counterpulic by repositioning man/boy love as natural and mutually beneficial.

Abstract: The proposed research project will evaluate how suspect and location characteristics predict the relationship between the offender and victim in homicides conducted by far-rightists. Both routine activities theory and ecological theory suggest that characteristics of the neighborhood influence one’s exposure to different groups of people. These theories suggest structural factors in the neighborhood may influence violent incidents, including who are the victims of a crime. This study will select a sample of single-offender homicides (both ideological and non-ideological for comparison) from the United States Extremist Crime Database (ECDB). The study will include suspect characteristics, as well as the descriptives of the town where the incident took place and the town(s) where the suspect and victim lived in a multivariate regression to model how these factors influence the relationship between the offender and victim (e.g. family/intimate-partners, friends, acquaintance/just met, strangers). Three hypotheses will be evaluated. First, victims of non-ideologically motivated homicides will be family or friends more often than they will be strangers/acquaintances. Second, victims in locations where the offender does not live are more likely to be strangers than friends/family. Lastly, the heterogeneity of a town will moderate the influence of ideology on the offender-victim relationship in a homicide.

Abstract: The tendency of individuals to seek congruent information has long ago been acknowledged, but the extent of this phenomenon in the online environment is under debate. This paper uses a combination of weblogs documenting participants’ Internet use (661,483 URLs from 15,976 websites visited by 402 participants in the weeks leading to the 2013 Israeli elections) in combination with survey data to explore a) the extent of exposure to partisan information, b) whether that exposure is associated with political ideology, c) whether or not it is accompanied by exposure to incongruent sources, d) whether self-reported measures of partisan exposure are associated with actual indicators of such exposure and e) whether the overall macro-level exposure patterns create online echo chambers. Results demonstrate that partisan content accounted for only 3% of total volume of web browsing. However, exposure to online partisan content was associated with ideology (e.g., right-winged respondents tended to visit right wing websites). Such congruent partisan exposure was also associated with exposure to incongruent sources, such that consuming congruent materials in addition to mainstream and incongruent materials was not uncommon. Findings also demonstrated that self-reported measures of exposure were inflated, compared to actual web use data and that the association between self-report and actual online news use were weak at best. Network analysis demonstrated a diverse media repertoire; there was no evidence that parts of the audience are centered on a group of websites.
