This is a 25 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Voting & Elections - The Role of Media & Public Policy. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The media influences public policy by bringing attention to issues, showing different views on issues, holding candidates accountable and allowing officials to communicate with citizens. Public Policy helps determine how individuals, interest groups and the media influence the actions of the government.
There was a time in the United States when candidates relied on word of mouth, local connections, newspapers and horseback to get their message to the voters. Some thought undignified to campaign personally for high office so they had “surrogates” running their campaigns for them. OH, HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED! Media, now plays one of the most significant roles in election campaigns, resulting in billions of dollars being spent on National Elections.
