I believe the media has almost everything to do with politics beliefs and voting behavior. The media plays a huge part in all campaigns, the main one being the presidential preliminary's and campaign. The two main political parties, democrats and republicans, get the most exposure to political media shows and resources, then libertarians and so on. Without the media, many of us wouldn't even know who was voting and what each person believed in for the country. There is so much media involved that without it, I believe we would have a different outcomes in some of our elections. The media is able to idolize and tear down certain candidates. Fox news for example is a republican news station, therefore, during campaigns they cover much in a swayed opinion. Democrats do the same thing with their news stations. With media, we are able to see the candidates talk directly to us and reach a public outreaching audience. Media helps the limitation of expenses to fly and talk everywhere in the country, to just broadcasting and talking over radio and TV. Media also allows the public to participate as they open up questions and pre voting polls on the internet. Media has the way of swinging undecided voters into one way or the other as well. If the media spends time talking with officials and going over policies of one party, voters could figure out things that they never knew about that party that could influence there decision one way or the other.
