Summary
This study examines attachment styles and other moderating variables that contribute to the priming effects of aggressive cue-eliciting elements within a newscast. College students participated in a pretest/posttest experiment. In the posttest, participants were randomly assigned to watch one of eight versions of a newscast, varying in the degree of aggressive words, weapon words, and violent pictures. After viewing the news stories, participants completed a series of priming assessments and an identification questionnaire. Results revealed that aggressive stimuli (aggressive words, weapon words) used in a newscast elicited varying levels of aggressive thoughts, hostile emotions, anger, and identification in some insecurely attached individuals. Aggressive stimuli also evoked aggressive thoughts, state anger, and enhanced identification with perpetrators in depressed individuals
