Thanks for taking the survey and I do appreciate your comments. I listed CNN and NYT as "American media" in order to distinguish them from foreign
media, such as the Times of London or BBC. The reason for doing this is that we test whether exposure to certain types of media is associated with
acceptance or rejection of the three case study statements. Whether they are indeed propaganda machines or legitimate news sources is secondary for
In regards to case study 1, the WTC Jewish employees statement, we are testing who has heard of this statement, and if so, from where. Also, we want
to research whether participants believe in this statement, and if they change their minds once they are presented with information that contradicts
this statement. This information is presented to everyone who does not check "I think it is untrue".
At this stage in my study, I am working only of research questions and have not yet formed a hypothesis or a theory.
