We discuss media effects research and theory with an emphasis on the social psychological processes that facilitate or inhibit media effects on individuals' attitudes, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors. We examine topics such as violence, advertising, stereotypes, news and politics, and fan culture, keeping in mind the role individual differences play in selective exposure to and reception of media messages. Outcomes include both positive and negative effects. Throughout, we will focus on the complexities of developing and executing media effects research.
