INT270 Politics and the Media


Politics and the media are entwined. This course examines ways politicians seek to influence the media and the power the media has over voters and the political agenda. Communications theory is applied to political coverage; advertising, opinion polls and media law; gender and ethnicity in political coverage. The inequitable treatment of pressure groups; foreign and international affairs; constraints placed on reporting defence matters, terrorism and war; regulation and media ownership; censorship and the role of the law, are also examined.
