Abstract
Using survey data from 2000 and 2007, this study examines individual-level variables influencing the hostile media perception (HMP). Specifically, the study explores how HMP in election coverage is determined based on people's political party identification and its strength, electoral engagement, and media use. HMP was greater for Republicans compared to Democrats in 2000 and 2007. Higher levels of partisanship as well as electoral engagement encouraged HMP.
