Public Opinion and Media Consumption Study
Hi! We're researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We are conducting a study to better understand audience evaluations of media coverage of gun regulations and gun rights.
You should be aware that your participation in this study is strictly voluntary and you are free to withdraw at any time. We will not ask for your name and every possible measure will be taken to protect your privacy. While we expect academic publications to result from this study, your responses will in no way be identifiable as your own.
Your participation in this study will involve reading some information and answering a series of questions. We expect it to take approximately 15 minutes. The content of the survey should cause no more discomfort than you would experience in your everyday life.
This study will help us gain a better understanding of how participants like you evaluate media coverage of important social issues.
Please choose a time and place when you can complete the study in one sitting and without interruption. It is very important that your responses are yours alone, without participation from any other person. Also, if you accidentally hit your browser's back button, your session will terminate and you just need to click on the link again to pick up from where you left.
