The Audience for In-Your-Face Politics

(p.116) Chapter 6 Who Watches This Stuff Anyway?
In-Your-Face Politics

Diana C. Mutz

Princeton University Press

This chapter utitlizes survey data to address the issue of whether those who watch in-your-face politics in the real world are also those likely to be affected by it. By combining content analyses of forty different contemporary political programs with viewership data, the chapter gains some purchase on who watches political programs that include this kind of content as opposed to less in-your-face political programming. One would presume that the patterns of news consumption remains traditional—that is, that people who watch political television are those most interested in politics, the most partisan, and so forth. However, the greater variety of available political programming means that some of these demographic correlates may have changed.

Keywords:   in-your-face politics, real world, political programs, viewership data, news consumption, politics
