Political Roles of the Media
While this is just a small example, it shows how the government is able to use the media as a source for leaking the information they want into the public. They were able to release this study to create a public outcry supporting their drug prevention initiatives. So the question then is how much does the government actually lets us know about? And, does the government just use the media as a puppet, to influence public opinion in supporting their policies?
While I have just touched the surface of the relationships between politicians and the media and the role of media in society, I believe it is obvious how reliant we have become on the media as our primary news source. Both politicians and society as a whole rely on getting their messages across through these imperfect news sources. No matter how flawed these methods of communication may be, they act as the most effective tools to spread information over miles of land in a short amount of time.
