  • Diversifying ICA: Identity, Difference, and the Politics of Transformation
    • Authors: Gardner P.
      Pages: 831 - 841
      Abstract: The outgoing President of the International Communication Association (ICA) reflects on the ongoing lack of ethnic and gender diversity reflected in our organization, at our conferences, and in our publications. Referencing past communication scholarship, specifically the constitutive approach, and postcolonial feminist approaches, the essay challenges communication scholars to seek out, read, and cite diverse research, and tackle our shared #Communicationsowhite problem. In so doing, we will expand our research networks, ensuring a rich ICA future whereby our membership, research networks, and publications reflect the diverse communication research that exists globally.

  • Using Attribution Theory To Explain The Affective Dispositions Of Tireless
           Moral Monitors Toward Narrative Characters
    • Authors: Tamborini R; Grall C, Prabhu S, et al.
      Pages: 842 - 871
      Abstract: Recent literature suggests that affective disposition theory (ADT) has difficulty explaining the appeal of protagonists that sometimes do bad things. We addressed this issue by integrating logic from attribution theory with ADT. Three studies examined whether causal factors identified in attribution theory’s covariation model (consensus, distinctiveness, and consistency) affected internal/external attributions (for a character’s harmful behavior) to shape liking for characters seen inflicting extreme harm. In Study 1, a 2 × 2 × 2 experiment varied (high vs low) the perceptions of consensus, distinctiveness, and consistency associated with a protagonist’s harmful acts to examine their effect on liking for a well-known hero. In a 3 × 2 × 2 × 2 experiment using an unknown character, Studies 2 and 3 added to Study 1’s design by varying character type (imperfect hero, morally equivocal character, villain). Findings indicate narrative cues serve as antecedent factors that prompt either internal or external attributions for a protagonist’s harmful behavior. Internal attributions negatively predict character liking, whereas external attributions are positive predictors. Findings suggest that writers, when they want viewers to like characters, may use attribution theory principles to signal that external factors caused the character’s harmful acts. We discuss this belief as an alternative to models that explain the appeal of protagonists who behave immorally, reasoning that initially-activated character schema can bias audiences in favor of a protagonist and minimize the importance of moral judgment.

  • Network Neuroscience Reveals Distinct Neuromarkers of Flow During Media
           Use
    • Authors: Huskey R; Wilcox S, Weber R.
      Pages: 872 - 895
      Abstract: Flow is characterized by a high level of intrinsic reward that results from a balance between task difficulty and individual ability. The Synchronization Theory of Flow offers an explanation for the neural basis of this process. It predicts an energetically-optimized, brain-network organization between cognitive control and reward regions when task difficulty and individual ability are balanced. While initial results provide support for structural predictions, the many-to-many connectivity and energetic optimality hypotheses remain untested. Our study addresses this gap. Subjects played a video game while undergoing functional magnetic resonance imaging. We experimentally manipulated task difficulty and individual ability. Using graph theoretical analyses, we show that the balanced-difficulty condition (compared to low- or high-difficulty) was associated with the highest average network degree in the fronto-parietal control network (implicated in cognitive control) and had the lowest global efficiency value, indicating low metabolic cost, and thereby testing Synchronization Theory’s core predictions.

  • New News Media, New Opinion Leaders' How Political Opinion Leaders
           Navigate the Modern High-choice Media Environment
    • Authors: Mangold F; Bachl M.
      Pages: 896 - 919
      Abstract: We updated the understanding of political opinion leaders’ news media use based on the increasing variety of news sources in the modern high-choice media environment. Building on seven decades of opinion leader research and integrating a contemporary news repertoire approach, we conceptualized and empirically investigated how opinion leaders navigate the modern news environment. We analyzed data from a representative general population survey (N = 1,572) in Germany to show that opinion leaders’ news use today is less homogenous than found in prior studies. An omnivore repertoire with many offline and online sources was equally effective in aiding opinion leadership as a quality-oriented news repertoire. Those with an omnivore repertoire were lower in political satisfaction, calling into question the traditional part played by opinion leaders in the process of democratic opinion formation.

  • Same Candidates, Different Faces: Uncovering Media Bias in Visual
           Portrayals of Presidential Candidates with Computer Vision
    • Authors: Peng Y.
      Pages: 920 - 941
      Abstract: How do today’s partisan media outlets produce ideological bias in their visual coverage of political candidates' Applying computer vision techniques, this study examined 13,026 images from 15 news websites about the two candidates in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The analysis unveils a set of visual attributes (e.g., facial expressions, face size, skin condition) that were adopted by media outlets of varying ideologies to differentially portray these two candidates. In addition, this study recruited 596 crowdsourced workers to rate a subset of 1,200 images and demonstrated that some visual features also effectively shape viewers’ perceptions of media slant and impressions of the candidates. For example, Clinton was portrayed with more expressions of happiness, which rendered her as more favorable, whereas Trump was associated with more expressions of anger, which made him look less positive but more dominant. These differences in facial expressions varied in line with media outlets’ political leanings.

  • A Model of Attentiveness to Outlying News
    • Authors: Lamberson P; Soroka S.
      Pages: 942 - 964
      Abstract: This paper offers a formal-theoretical account for the preponderance of negative news content. It draws on work suggesting that humans and news media prioritize outlying information and argues that one reason for a negativity bias in news consumption and production is that negative information is more “outlying”: that is, further away from expectations. Expectations change over time, however, and so too do negativity (and other) biases. This dynamic is explored using some simple simulations, followed by an empirical explication using data on the U.S. economy alongside media coverage of the economy and public economic expectations. The end result is a broadly-generalizable account of the shifting prominence of “outlying” information.

  • Hidden Democracy: Political Dissent in Rural America
    • Authors: Van Duyn E.
      Pages: 965 - 987
      Abstract: Previous research has considered how network composition influences the extent to which one is willing to engage in politics with others. Yet much of this work has focused on composition rather than context and on public forms of political expression rather than ones that occur outside the public eye. Dissent in rural communities may be especially risky, because residents lack anonymity and rely on local patronage. This study offers evidence that challenges existing theories and concepts of opinion expression and political organizing, suggesting that when faced with an opposing community, rural residents may organize and express their opinions in secret. Through a series of in-depth interviews, this research examined the experiences of a secret political organization of 136 registered members in rural Texas. This study explored how members expressed their opinions and organized in secret, why they do so, and the effect this had on their political engagement in public.
