|Publication/ source||Media, Culture and Society, vol.13 pp444-458|
|Summary text/ abstract||Media-related research on environmental issues has followed much of the same path as media and communication research on any other social problem or issue. It is not surprising, therefore, that such research embodies amny of the same weaknesses of communications research generally. Most notable among these is a root problem of looking at the communication process from a linear transmission or diffusion-oriented perspective. This attempts to trace the influence of media coverage on public opinion, or the influence of media coverage on political decision-making, without due appreciation of the dynamic interaction of these different fora of meaning production, and without due recognition of the wider cultural context of definitions of the environment.|
