Abstract

This is a correction to the article Hasan, Y., Bègue, L., & Bushman, B. J. (2012). Viewing the world through “blood-red tinted glasses”: The hostile expectation bias mediates the link between violent video game exposure and aggression. Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, 48(4), 953–956. In the Results section, the paragraph under “Intercoder reliability” should read: “Two independent raters, blind to experimental conditions, rated on a 1-7 scale (from “not at all aggressive” to “completely aggressive”) the aggressive content of each of the behaviors, thoughts, and feelings participants listed when completing the story stems. The intraclass correlation coefficients were.74,.78, and.82 for aggressive behaviors, thoughts, and feelings, respectively (Shrout & Fleiss, 1979). Because the intraclass correlation coefficients were relatively high, the scores from the two raters were averaged. All ratings in each response category were averaged, and then further averaged across the two story stems to increase reliability.” The authors regret this error and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
