Abstract

The twentieth century has been marked by advances in communications technology as well as mounting psychological distress. This study explored the premise that exposure to negative news via the media contributes to anxiety and depression. Levels of news media exposure, stress levels, irrational beliefs, optimism-pessimism, anxiety, and depression were assessed (n = 239) and analyzed using multiple regression techniques. Negative stress was directly related to anxiety and depression. News media exposure and anxiety werepositively related at low levels of irrationality. News media exposure waspredictive of trait anxiety at low levels of optimism. However, media exposure was not predictive of depression. The implications of the findings forunderstanding how the news media impacts stress and the cognitive factors that effect this relationship are discussed.
