Agenda building and setting in a referendum campaign: Investigating the flow of arguments among campaigners, the media, and the public


Wirth, Werner; Matthes, J; Schemer, C; Wettstein, M; Friemel, Thomas N; Hänggli, R; Siegert, G (2010). Agenda building and setting in a referendum campaign: Investigating the flow of arguments among campaigners, the media, and the public. Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, 87(2):328-345.

Abstract

This study tests second-level agenda-building and -setting effects in the course of a referendum campaign. Personal standardized interviews with forty-seven different campaign managers and a content analysis of campaign material are linked to a content analysis of TV and newspaper coverage and a three-wave public opinion survey. The results demonstrate the dynamic flow of arguments in the agenda-building and -setting process: top-down from the campaigners to the news media and the public.
