Brown, Jane D. (2011). The Media Do Matter: Comment on Steinberg and Monahan (2011). Developmental Psychology, 47(2)
Steinberg and Monahan's (2011) reanalysis of the Teen Media longitudinal survey of adolescents does not meet prevailing standards for propensity score analysis and therefore does not undermine the original conclusions of the Brown, L'Engle, Pardun, Guo, Kenneavy, and Jackson (2006) analysis. The media do matter in the sexual socialization of adolescents.
