Description
Movements and Media as Interacting Systems (Staggenbourg) - Movements are typically less powerful than media organizations are in controlling images- the frame presented by the media is sometimes different than the movement would like - Fundamental asymmetry in relations of movements and media because movements need media but the media do not need movements as much - One important consequence of limited time and resources of media organizations is the centralization of news gathering- journalists rely solely on “official source” which present a largely coherent worldview- sometimes results in a missed or incomplete story Different movements have come up with strategies for securing favourable media coverage - Resorting to drama
