Research shows that both values and some media effects develop slowly, over a similar time frame. The current study uses cross-sectional data collected during the second round of the European Social Survey-- including a twenty-one-question Schwartz Value Survey--to look at links between individual values and exposure to newspapers, television news and entertainment, radio news, and the Internet. The results support the hypothesis that media exposure--particularly entertainment television and Internet use--is linked to value orientations.
