Key Concepts to Remember 1. As a major source of political information, the media, particularly television, help shape the public’s perceptions and reality. As a vital linkage institution, the media is able to mobilize citizens to take political action and influence the behavior of government officials. 2. The media have a strong voice in deciding which issues will be placed on the public’s agenda, but when they cover election campaigns, they tend to focus on the “horse race” aspects of the contest and not on substantive issues. 3. The standards of newsworthiness include audience appeal and impact, uniqueness, and timeliness. The nature of media coverage also is affected by time and space constraints and accessibility of news sources.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
