Researchers interested in the effects of television exposure on viewers’ attitudes
and social perceptions have long relied on cultivation theory as a framework for
examining this relationship (see Gerbner, Gross, Morgan, Signorielli, &
Shanahan, 2002, for review). Despite its extensive application, however, the theory

Shrum, 1996; Shrum & O’Guinn, 1993). Notably, such criticisms have given rise
