Wieller 1 Dr. Vernooy-Epp English 106, 11am 28 September 2007 Annotated Bibliography on the Media’s Coverage of Political Scandal Kiousis, Spiro. “Job Approval and Favorability: the Impact of Media Attention on the Monica Lewinsky Scandal on Public Opinion of President Bill Clinton,” Mass Communication and Society 6 (2003): 435-451. Academic Search Complete . EBSCOhost. Shippensburg U, Ezra Lehman Memorial Library. 08 Sep. 2007 <http://www.epnet.com>. In this article, Spiro Kiousis explores the relationship between agenda setting and public opinion of political candidates. He focused on priming and agenda-setting theories, and explored the influence of news coverage of the Monica Lewinsky scandal on public opinion of President Bill Clinton. Kiousis suggested that media coverage was strongly connected with changes in public opinion of the president. He explained to us that a positive relation was observed between media coverage and perceived favorability, and a negative relation was observed between media coverage and job approval. Kiousis also argued that the relation was stronger with favorability than job approval. He showed us specifically that media of a presidential candidate’s attributes is compared to public opinion data measuring the strength of public attitudes regarding candidates. It is easy to connect Spiro Kiousis’ article with Stephanopoulos’ article because both are dealing with President Bill Clinton and focusing strongly on what his scandals do to his perception by the rest of the country. At the same time Stephanopoulos is giving us firsthand experiences, Kiousis is also giving us his firsthand observations and experiments to make his statement stronger.
