WEEK 2 ASSIGNMENT JUAN R. GONZALEZ R. Chamberlain University POLI 330N: Political Science January, 2021
Introduction SOCIALIZATIO N WATCHDOG EDUCATION Three roles that the media has on the government and the public are as follows: (Whitman, 2020)
Socialization The media has a large impact on the current public and its role in political socialization (Whitman, 2020) Political Socialization can be described as the progression of the media gaining the public’s views and values on politics and the government (Owen, 2018) Some scholars argue that the media closes the gap between journalists and the public by giving a voice to those who have felt left out, which has a great impact on Political Socialization (Owen, 2018)
Watchdog The way that the media acts as a watchdog is that it depends on the trust of the public and the public must believe the information that the media is providing, which ultimately influences its action for reporting (Bikales, 2018)
