Media priming effect: A preregistered replication experiment. 
Journal of Experimental Political Science.

Iyengar et al. (1984) discovered the media priming effect, positing that by drawing attention to certain issues while ignoring others, television news programs help define the standards by which presidents are evaluated. We conducted a direct replication of Experiment 1 by Iyengar et al. (1984), with some changes. Specifically, we (a) collected data from Japanese undergraduates; (b) reduced the number of conditions to two; (c) used news coverage of the issue of relocating US bases in Okinawa as the treatment; (d) measured issue-specific evaluations of the Japanese Prime Minister in the pretreatment questionnaire; and (e) performed statistical analyses that are more appropriate for testing heterogeneity in the treatment effect. We did not find statistically significant evidence of media priming. Overall, the results suggest that the effects of media priming may be quite sensitive either to the media environment or to differences in populations in which the effect has been examined.

メディアのプライミング効果(メディアが報道するニュースは,議題設定機能を果たすだけでなく,受け手(一般市民)がどの政治的争点が重要かを判断するかを判断する際の基準の形成にも影響を与える)を実証した研究としてしばしば引用されるIyengar, Kinder, Peters, and Krosnick (1984)の実験1を追試したものです.結果はNullでした.論文が公刊される際には実験データもDataverseで公開されます.
