Extracted from text ... I n democratic societies, crime policy and its management by parliaments and ministries largely depends on trends in crime. If, over a prolonged period, the media report strong upward trends in the number of crimes committed and if the public debate on crime focuses on spectacular, serious crimes, policymakers come under heavy pressure to increase statutory punishments and tighten the rules of procedure for criminal prosecutions.

Extracted from text ... Media Tenor Quarterly Journal 1/2005 F inancial analysts not only communicate with relevant investor groups directly, but also indirectly through the business media.

Extracted from text ... Agenda Setting: Presidential debates and voting preferences The long arm of spin doctors The debates between US President George Bush and his challenger John Kerry did not have a direct infl uence on voting preferences of the US population in the end. The analysis of the response shows clearly: Not the debates themselves, but rather the subsequent spin on television infl uenced the voters' image of the candidates. The so-called spin doctoring, that is the manipulation of public opinion, even reached as far as Germany. After nine months of campaigning and an election coverage that was based on very little ..
