ABSTRACT
The article focuses on issues to be considered by researchers when researching for television news in the U.S. It is noted that researchers should look at the consistency of concepts and operations of television news with regards to the three central methodological considerations. Meanwhile, the research on the cognitive aspects of television news has its main origin in the experimental psychology tradition. Another issue to be addressed is the control of organizations producing television news.
