Question and answer
Q: Answer the following question in one to two well-written paragraphs. Which of the following have the greatest impact in determining and shaping public policy - political parties or interest groups?
Be sure to explain your reasoning and support your answer with at least one example.
A: I think that the greatest impact in determining and shaping public policy comes from the media. Through the media it is possible to quickly reach a huge number of people and with persuasive arguments influence the people in masse. [ These are the same people that are responsible for policy changes and cant help but take into account the general strength of feeling on issues. An example of this
is the fact that politicians make extensive use of spin doctors. These people can cause a change in policy and the way they do it is by calling up the newspapers and getting their points across. Individuals have the ideas but it is the media that has the greatest impact. ]
