Example 2. Historians are never mere collectors of documents. They offer recon­ structions of past events that they deem consistent with current readings of all available documentary evidence. Historians are far removed from the worlds they wish to articulate. They cannot interview Julius Caesar, ask Homer about his sources for the Iliad, participate in the experiences of African slaves entering colonial America, or listen to conversations between Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse.

2. Texts do not have single meanings that could be "found, " "identified," and " described" for what they are. Just as texts can be read from numerous perspec­ tives, so signs can have several designations and data can be subjected to various analyses. One can count the characters, words, or sentences of a text. One can categorize its phrases, analyze its metaphors, describe the logical structure of its constituent expressions, and ascertain its associations, connotations, denota­ tions, and commands.

As Gerbner and his col­ leagues have shown through content analyses, mass-media audiences are not aware of the statistical trends in the qualities of popular heroes, the kinds of violence depicted, and the representations of minorities in television programming.

Content analysis is in trouble only when expert interpretations fail to acknowl­ edge the uses of texts by designated populations of readers or actors, particularly when content analysts fail to spell out the criteria for validating their results.
