The ignored audience : a multi-method reception study on children and television news in Albania

Emiljano Kaziaj and Sofie Van Bauwel UGent (2017) CHILDHOOD-A GLOBAL JOURNAL OF CHILD RESEARCH .
abstract
Abstract Children are not considered to be an appropriate audience for news coverage based on their presumed lack of emotional maturity, critical thinking and proper knowledge. This article challenges these views by presenting the opinions of children aged 10-15 who report having watched broadcast news nearly every day. Additionally, the views of adults aged 25-62, are investigated. Children contest to the ways they are being portrayed by the news media and demonstrate their need to be considered as active participants in the public sphere, which is presented by the news media as an exclusive domain for adults.
