Homework Help: government

Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, October 19, 2008 at 4:09pm.

Interest groups attempt to stimulate “public support” for their causes. One tactic is to manipulate public opinion through use of the media. To illustrate, Elizabeth Whelan, executive director of the American Council on Science and Health, report that from 1964 to 1984 there was “no major story on the health impact of cigarette smoking in any major U.S. popular publication… some10-40% of advertising revenues for U.S. magazines comes from tobacco advertisement.” Is there a correlation between these two facts? Can’t interest groups achieve their objectives without even contacting the government? What can be done to prevent such exploitation of public information?
