Abstract: In this paper, we test the effects of interest group endorsements on potential voters in the 2008 presidential election. Specifically, we use a posttest-only, multiple control group experiment (N=701) to examine how real-world endorsements affect voters. We find that endorsements have profound effects on some voters. Specifically, we find that interest group endorsements profoundly affect the candidate evaluations and stated voting preferences of potential voters who are what we call “poorly aligned”—that is, whose stand on the issue on which the endorsement is based (in this case, abortion) does not align “properly” with their party identification and ideology. Moreover, we find that the effects of endorsements are most profound among poorly aligned voters who are not well-informed. In all, our results confirm that interest group endorsements indeed act as cues for voters, even in high-information elections.

Abstract: This paper draws upon content analysis and survey data from a 12-nation comparative study to examine the question of content-interest correspondence (CIC) regarding foreign news on television, i.e., to what extent do the contents of foreign news aired on television match the interests that audience members have regarding foreign news. Using CIC as a variable, the data show that, among the nations studied, CIC concerning foreign countries covered in the news is generally stronger than CIC regarding topics in the news. At the same time, the analysis examines whether the level of CIC relates to several national, media system, and audience characteristics. The analysis shows that larger nations exhibit higher levels of CIC regarding topics and lower levels of CIC regarding countries. Interestingly, the more commercialized the television system is and the greater the focus on soft news, the lower the CIC regarding news topics. Implications of the findings and directions for further research are discussed.

Abstract: Narrativity and film studies theorists have been discussing the impact of exposition location on narrative interest. No study, though, have empirically investigated impact of exposition location on viewers. Two forms of narrative interest, suspense and curiosity, were investigated in the present study as outcome of various degrees of exposition delay: preliminary exposition (PES), delayed exposition (DES) and extra delayed exposition (EDES). Suspense and curiosity were captured at the end of the film as well as during the viewing: during a suspense event or during a curiosity event. 186 subjects (55.4% women) took part in a 3 (discourse structure exposition) X 2 (measurement moment) between-subjects experimental design. The results reveal overall suspense to be the highest in PES and curiosity to be the highest in DES and EDES. Two types of curiosity were found to work differently from each other: curiosity for the identity of the murderer and character curiosity.
