Framing responsibility for political issues: The preference for dispositional attributions and the effects of news frames


Matthes, J (2009). Framing responsibility for political issues: The preference for dispositional attributions and the effects of news frames. Communication Research Reports, 26(1):82-86.

Abstract

This study takes an individual differences perspective in explaining framing effects. In an experiment manipulating episodic and thematic framing, the trait preference for dispositional attributions was measured and treated as a quasi-experimental factor. Beside a significant framing effect, the general attributional preference of an individual determined responsibility attributions. However, the trait exerted an impact only in the thematic condition, not in the episodic condition.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
