Abstract: This study uses survey data from a nationally representative sample of U.S. adults to examine the relationship between different forms of cable news use (i.e., Fox News vs. CNN and MSNBC) and various beliefs and perceptions about global warming. Looking across six different outcome measures, consistent evidence is found for a negative association between Fox News use and certainty of and concern about global warming, even after controlling for numerous potential confounding factors. Conversely, viewing CNN and MSNBC is associated with higher levels of conviction and concern about global warming. Further analyses reveal that the observed relationships between cable news use (both Fox News and CNN/MSNBC) and global warming perceptions and beliefs are stronger among conservative-Republicans than among liberal-Democrats. The relationships between cable news use and global warming beliefs and perceptions are also found to be more pronounced among low global warming information seekers, relative to high information seekers.

2. Lea, Suzanne. "Pathetic Men and Innocent Maidens v. Hot Teachers and Teenage Boys: Constructing Sex Offenders on MSNBC" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CRIMINOLOGY, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Atlanta, Georgia, Nov 14, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-04-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p201811_index.html>

Abstract: This paper examines the confrontation of sex offending by MSNBC (and the NBC network more broadly). NBC's "To Catch a Predator" is now virtually a weekly show. The program is remarkably predictable, given that it is supposed to represent a "live" on-air confrontation with a man who thinks he is coming to have sex with a teenage girl. Nearly always the man responds with neutralization or rationalization techniques, per Sykes and Matza (1957). Sometimes, the confrontation becomes a confessional. Typically, the men seem to defer to the host; always, the men are characterized as pathetic and the girls as innocent and desexualized. Remarkably, all of this-- including the later (inevitable) arrest and interrogation by police-- is caught on tape with full disclosure of the man's identity. This confrontation with male offenders is contrasted with Matt Lauer's more gentle encounters with female teachers accused of sexually abusing male students. The gendered dynamics of offender, victim, reporter, and audience is explored against the backdrop of consent, the sexualization of youth, and the catharsis provided by a modern "public hanging" of our most reviled offender: sex offenders.

3. Ha, Jaesik. "“Health Care Reform” vs. “ObamaCare”: Partisan Framing of FOX, MSNBC, NYT, and WSJ" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Sheraton Phoenix Downtown, Phoenix, AZ, May 24, 2012 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-04-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p555263_index.html>

Abstract: This study investigated how The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Fox News and MSNBC framed President Obama’s health care legislation in 2009-2010. By employing a framing analysis as a methodology, it was found that American mainstream media framed Obama’s health care proposal on a partisan and ideological basis. The WSJ and Fox News’s The O’Reilly Factor consistently mocked Obama’s health care plan as “Obamacare;” while the NYT and MSNBC’s Countdown with Kieth Olbermann praised it as “health care reform.” In particular, liberal media presented worldwide globalization as a rationale for supporting Obama’s proposal. In contrast, conservative media denigrated Obama’s proposal by underestimating the advantages of the universal health care systems of foreign countries (e.g., Canada and England). Both conservative and liberal media tried to defame those opponents who did not agree with their ideological point of view or causes. In essence, the news coverage of Obama’s proposals in 2009-2010 was a clash of partisan framing between the conservative and liberal media.
