dc.description.abstract The article presents information on a study that consists of a content analysis of 41 Australian newspaper articles pertaining specifically to the grey nurse shark and serves to deconstruct the explicit messages that they attempt to convey to their readers. The data generated by this study exemplify the perceptions of Carcharias taurus as represented by major Australian newspapers between the years 1969 and 2003. The term agenda-setting refers to the creation of public awareness and concern for issues that are reported by the news media. The fundamental basis for research on agenda-setting is to recognize that the media is not a reflection of reality but rather filters and shapes reality, and the focus that the media places on specific issues leads the public to perceive "those" issues as more important than others. In a 1997 study entitled "Changing Attitudes Toward California Cougars," Jennifer R. Wolch and Unna Lassiter of the University of Southern California along with Andrea Gullo of the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority in Los Angeles analyzed the impact that the newspaper media had on attitudes and understandings that the public had developed towards the California Cougar. en_US
