Media and Politics


The relationship between the media ***** politics is one that goes back to ***** early days of print. Today, the relationship has evolved to one that causes the public ***** sometimes question who ***** in charge; ***** 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 ***** and the political entity seem completely synchronized in goal ***** ideas that it is difficult to separate where one or the o*****r begins on an issue, ********** the other ends. At ***** ***** 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 ***** (Schultz, David ***** Lang, Peter, 2000, p. xi). Then, in *****, close ***** friend and costar ***** the action film Predator, Arnold Schwarzenegger ***** elected as governor of California (Ramarkrishnan, S. Karthick, 2005, p. 148). Celebr*****y *****olitics, media coverage, and politics have taken on a new delivery to ***** public, ***** it is ***** that is c*****s*****tent with pop culture.

The ***** is whether or not th***** ***** media-political relationship is informing ********** public with facts and information that can be deemed reliable.

"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 third parties (Hill, Steve, 2002, p. 57)." This means that the media, perceiving *****, ***** virtue of his celebrity, as a news item, followed and contributed to the candidate's political success with a greater media attention than ********** might have spent on an independent or third party candidate *****out the celebrity that Ventura had. In t***** *****, the media w***** largely resp*****sible for "making" ***** candidate's campaign successful.

Unfortunately, once Ventura arrived at his new office, he was met with hostility from his 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, ***** he was *****
