Abstract: The study of parasocial interaction (PSI) is pertinent as watching news shows is a routine behavior, and news anchors are often bestowed the role of opinion leaders. This study looks at the effect of presentation styles of newscasters on levels of PSI in television news viewers. A cross-cultural perspective is adopted by examining American and Indian news viewers to measure differences between them. Results are discussed along with directions for future research.

Abstract: Integrative complexity coding is a reliable method of analysing verbatim speech and provides an indication of the amount of available cognitive resources. As a non-invasive measure of cognitive processing not susceptible to impression management, it is particularly suited for analysing the reactions of public and political figures during major societal upheaval.An earlier study of live news broadcasts during the 9/11 terrorist attacks found that integrative complexity decreased with increasing levels of negative affect, particularly among North American newscasters (Jhangiani & Suedfeld, 2005). This finding was explained with reference to the disruptive stress hypothesis of integrative complexity, which posits a positive relationship between emotional arousal and integrative complexity at low levels of stress, and a negative relationship between the two variables at high levels of stress. Results from two follow-up studies are presented here.In study 1, a local live news radio broadcast during the 2005 London bombings was coded for integrative complexity and negative affect. Results replicated the earlier findings, revealing a clear curvilinear and sequential relationship between negative affect and integrative complexity.In study 2, the data consisted of the speeches and statements made by George W. Bush and Tony Blair immediately before & after both the 9/11 and London terrorist attacks. In both cases, once again results supported the disruptive stress hypothesis of integrative complexity. In addition, the moderating effect of psychological distance on both the cognitive and affective outcomes was demonstrated. Implications, limitations, and future directions are discussed.

Abstract: While network news has demonstrated evidence of the erosion of the concept of a “newscast of record,” i.e the evening newscast as the prime and most desired location for story placement and agenda setting, television news research has failed to recognize that shift. Instead, research focuses on analyzing news content found in nightly newscasts, giving short shrift to some programs (morning news, news magazines) and ignoring others altogether (early morning, weekend and overnight news). In this essay, the authors offer a theoretical framework for a holistic approach to news research, arguing that it is only through looking at programming across the day can one come to an understanding about how stories are reported and news agendas are set.

5. Hughes, Sallie. "Media diversity in Latin American newscasts: Results from a five-country study" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Marriott, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-08-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p298668_index.html>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: Media (non) diversity in Latin America is much decried, but seldom measured. In this paper, I present findings from quantitative content analysis of a constructed week of the top two network newscasts in Mexico, Costa Rica, Uruguay, and Venezuela. In Chile I analyze the top four newscasts, so that two commercial and two "public" media outlets are included. I measured the class, race, and gender of journalists on the newscasts and the figures featured in the news. Early findings confirm the lack of content diversity criticized in critical essays on Latin American news, with little-to-no variation due to primary versus secondary ratings leadership among commercial newscasts. I also found little country-level differences among the commercial newscasts. As expected, and pending more analysis, there is variation between private commercial (oligopoly) ownership and "public" ownership (found in Chile only), although the differences are not as large as some theorists might predict.
