What does the power of the media mean?
Yes as people have been crushed by the media take Jordan for example.
In my opinion that would be the media; in particular, the broadcast media. Those that believe that the government or the people in government are the answer must take into consideration that so much of the media is delivering opinion rather than news. We don't get to hear what government officials are actually doing only what a particular media person or media group wants us to think they are doing. That power trumps the power…
Not all media in general but mass media in current trends is highly accused of playing the role of power broker,especialy TV news channels during election time.Every news channel has a certain percentage of viewers following them,these viewers represents a huge vote bank but it is impossible to say media succeeds in its attempt to power broker, cause the social and economic background of each viewers differs.
