Abstract

Past research examining incivility within media discourse has consistently found conservative discourse to have elevated levels of incivility in comparison to liberals. The present study provides more nuance on this understanding, by looking at differences within conservative media. Using 330 articles from across the conservative media landscape, the following research examines the presence of differences between more traditional republicans, populists, and libertarians. Differences across these three ideologies are found, as well as differences based on topics covered. This research indicates that a deeper dive into political differences within groups may provide insights in norms of incivility.
