Abstract

Reactions to the Wallace shooting and awareness of it indicate that the role of interpersonal first sources of information was much greater than expected from previous studies. A second study supported the hypothesis that delays between the event and the time-of-interview account for the apparent lack of interpersonal influence in other studies, through the dissociation of source and content within the receiver.
