Gov: Mass Media Review



Review

  • While the mass media may help shape public opinion they are also shaped by it. Public opinion is the sum of a large number of individual opinions.
  • Americans today receive information from print, broadcast, and electronic media.
  • The news media serves as government watchdogs, agenda setters, and forums for an exchange of views in a democracy.
  • U.S. media’s roles are signaler, watchdog, common carrier, and public representative.
