Fernsehen und Angstbewältigung [which translates to TV and Coping with Fear] is a book by Peter Vitouch, an Austrian professor of Psychology at the faculty for Media Studies.

Departing from the works of George Gerbner and his cultivation theory and Neil Postman‘s book Amusing Ourselves to Death, two works pretty critical of mass media, Vitouch looks at the way watching a lot of TV affects ourselves. He summarizes a few smaller studies he did himself that examine the way people retain and process information and what kind of programs they choose. He especially takes into account how they perceive the distribution of control in the world (based on the locus of control theory) and how they cope with fear.

Vitouch’s studies are interesting, but he’s not a very talented explainer of theories. Plus, everything just felt a tad outdated already.
