Answer all these three questions separately, each of which is about 1 page in length, and you don’t need any sources.
1. How do we best measure public opinion? Describe important differences between focus groups, nonscientific polling, and scientific polling, including their benefits and drawbacks. Which is best for accurately measuring public opinion? Why? How might this type still have problems of accuracy?
2. How is the US media unique from other countries? What impact have these differences had on the media’s interaction with politics? How has the media evolved over our nation’s history through the eras we discuss? How “good” is today’s media, in your opinion?
3. What factors influence how the media covers political issues? How do these standards influence the way the public thinks about policy problems, political events, and electoral contests? What could the media do to improve how Americans think about such important political problems? Make sure and describe the five impacts of the modern media. Which of these five is least likely to occur? Why? (the five impacts of the modern media are: framing, priming, agenda-setting, persuasion, and learning. Also, I just upload a pdf that to show what that means.)
