Influencing the Media

  • Public officials at all levels of government try to both attract and shape media coverage

  • They do this in three ways…

    • Staged Events – These events are planned in advance – press conferences, debates, and speeches are the most common forms

    • Spin – During interviews, politicians goal is to convince both reporters and the public that their view of events is the correct one

    • Leaks – The unofficial release of confidential information to the media

      • Usually happens during “off-the-record” conversations

      • Politicians use leaks to expose wrongdoing, stir up support, or spin the way an event or issue is covered
