Media and Politics


The relationship between the media ***** politics is one that goes back to ***** early days of print. Today, the ***** has evolved to one ***** causes the public ***** sometimes question who ***** in charge; the media or the government. At o*****r times, as was the case with the U.S. invasion of Iraq, when ***** term "embedded reporter" ***** invented; the media and ***** political entity seem completely synchronized in goal and ideas that it is difficult to separate where one or the o*****r begins on an issue, ********** the other ends. ***** other times we see a vying for power, as was the case in 1998 when the Minnesota state election results brought news to Minnesotans of their new governor, Jesse "the body" Ventura, a former wrestling television star, talk show radio host, and, *****n, Minnesota's new ***** (Schultz, David ***** Lang, Peter, 2000, p. xi). Then, in 2000, close ***** friend and costar ***** the action film Predator, Arnold Schwarzenegger ***** elected as governor of California (Ramarkrishnan, S. Karthick, 2005, p. 148).

"Out of 535 Congressional and U.S. Senate seats, only two are held by an independent representative (one each from Vermont *****d Virginia), none by third parties (Hill, Steve, 2002, p. 57)." This means that the *****, perceiving Ventura, ***** virtue of his celebrity, as a news item, followed and contributed to the candidate's political success ***** a greater media attention than ********** might have spent on an independent or third party candidate without the celebrity ***** Ventura had. In t***** case, ***** media was largely responsible for "making" the *****'s campaign successful.

Unfortunately, once Ventura arrived at his new office, he ***** met with hostility from ***** legislative body that he needed to support him if he was to make any progress as Minnesota's governor. The media switched lanes on Ventura, and, *****ce he ***** *****
