Media and Politics


The relationship between the media ***** politics is one that goes back to the early days of print. Today, the relationship has evolved to one that causes ***** public to sometimes question who is in charge; the media or the government. At other times, as was the case with the U.S. invasion of Iraq, when ***** term "embedded reporter" was invented; the ***** and ***** political entity seem completely synchronized in goal ***** ideas ***** it ***** difficult to separate where one or the o*****r begins on an issue, ********** the other ends. ***** ***** times we see a vying for power, as was the case in 1998 when the Minnesota state election results brought news to Minnesotans of *****ir new governor, Jesse "the body" Ventura, a former wrestling television star, talk show radio host, and, then, Minnesota's new governor (Schultz, David ***** Lang, Peter, 2000, p. xi). Then, in 2000, close ***** friend and costar ***** the action film Predator, Arnold Schwarzenegger ***** elected as ***** of California (Ramarkrishnan, S. Karthick, 2005, p. 148). Celebrity politics, media coverage, and politics have taken on a new delivery to the public, ***** it is ***** that is consistent w*****h pop culture. We ***** a ***** and political relationship today that is one ***** common interests, diverging *****, or ***** interests; and the nature of the interest dictates how ***** media and the political entity or individual w*****k together. The question is whether or not this new media-***** relationship is inf*****ming the public with facts and information that can be deemed reliable.

***** Jesse Ventura announced h***** c*****idacy for governor of Minnesota, Ventura, in his rough and tough talk vocabulary and way, attempted to convey a sense ***** seriousness about ***** *****s ***** the ***** *****re is little question but ***** without the massive media attention Ventura received in his campaign bid for ***** governor's office, he would probably have failed ***** his ef*****t to ***** elected to that office as a third party - meaning ***** was running as a c*****ndidate who was not affiliated with either the Democratic party, or the Republican *****. "Out of 535 Congressional and U.S. Senate seats, only two are held by an independent representative (one each from Vermont and Virginia), none by ***** parties (Hill, Steve, 2002, p. 57)." T***** means that ***** *****, perceiving Ventura, ***** virtue of his celebrity, as a ***** item, followed and contributed to the candidate's political success with a greater media attention than they might have spent on an independent or third party candidate without the celebrity that Ventura had. In t***** *****, ***** media w***** largely responsible for "making" the candidate's ***** successful.

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