1. Schneider, Christopher. "Media Trials: Media Justice or Just Media? Media Depictions of Martha Stewart and Kimberly Jones" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Montreal Convention Center, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Aug 10, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-08-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p101464_index.html>

Abstract: Meaning is often constructed through dissemination of particular information communicated to the social body through the media. The ways in which messages concerning issues of justice are disseminated, formatted, and mediated, shape the very character of the way these messages are received and interpreted. Understanding then the organization, selection, and presentation of information disseminated by the media is necessary if we are to address general quires involving shared perceptions of social justice. This exploratory project represents an initial attempt at understanding some of the ways in which people might understand and negotiate social meanings of justice based from media presentations of celebrity trials. This paper adopts two analytical frameworks, Parker and Lauderdale’s (2003) conditions of political counterdenunciations and Altheide’s (2002) media logic in an effort to systematically analyze some of the logical contextual nuances concerning counterdenunciation acts utilized in the media in the recent Martha Stewart and Kimberly Jones (Lil’ Kim) trials. The findings presented here spotlight some of the ways in which the media act as a constituent to the overall process of counterdenunciation apart, but not necessarily removed from the context of the courtroom. Implications for future research are discussed.

Abstract: Research about the way people perceive news media has made progress in three parallel avenues, the first used the concept of credibility and trust, the second of hostile media perceptions and the third—focusing on perceptions of media impact—used the concept of the third person perception. In this chapter, we argue that these three avenues are empirically and conceptually connected and that they are related to media effects in three ways: First, people's mistrust of media has been found to moderate the influence of media on the audience in an array of studies. Second, people's perceptions regarding media impact matter, albeit indirectly, because people react to these perceptions as if they were real. Third, the effects of perceptions of media influence are amplified when they are coupled with perceptions of media hostility, especially among audiences that are personally and emotionally involved in the issues on which media texts report.

Abstract: This study builds from past research on news repertoires to explore the ways individuals combine exposure across a wide array of media and content. Results indicate that some news audiences have clear, ideologically driven news patterns. However, this is not characteristic of most, and some news audiences even pattern their exposure around both conservative and liberal news. A closer look at socio-demographic factors and participation levels among news patterns is also explored. Results shed light on the democratic implications of the high-choice media landscape, and research on news effects.

"Public Interest, Media Diversity, and the Meaning of Media Democracy: Integrated Paradigm of Media Diversity" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, May 21, 2008 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-08-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p229905_index.html>

Abstract: Despite the imperativeness of promoting media diversity, due to conceptual and methodological differences, no practical study has yet been done, which in turn hinders adequate implementation of the policy. Drawing upon this central concern of media diversity, the paper 1) interrogates the raised issues of media diversity within the political economy context, 2) defines the concept of media diversity, examining widely used approaches to the media diversity, and 3) proposes an integrated theoretical paradigm of media diversity relevant to the broadcasting industry, combining holistic and pragmatic approaches. The holistic approach provides a general guideline for establishing public interest standards for media diversity while the pragmatic approach helps assess specific areas of media diversity. In this way, the integrated theory can identify the relationship between normative concerns for the policy objective and specific indicators for the assessment of the multi-levels of the diversity dimension, vital to the explication of the complexity inherently in the concept of media diversity.
