Politics and the Media from The Encyclopedia of International Media and Communications
The relationship between politics and the media, of course, depends on the systems of government and the communications that govern this relationship. The conditions in the United States, for example, are very different from those in other parts of the world. The United States has a written constitution which, in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights, provides special protection for the press from government control.
