Television news programs enjoy a high percentage of audience. For most viewers, events presented on the news are not only a source of knowledge but also a subject of evaluation and commentaries. A typical informational program is built of a series of consecutive news stories. Results from numerous studies show that the ordering of events in an informational program exerts significant impact on understanding their contents as well as the mood and emotional arousal of the viewers. However, little is known so far about the effect of news story ordering on evaluations of the intentions of their characters. The objective of the experiments presented in this article is to establish to what degree the evaluation of the intention of the main character from a proceeding TV news story affects the evaluation of the intention of the main character from the subsequent news story.
