Example text

Journalists’ agenda-setting power is hardly new. In 1963 Cohen (cited in Strobel, 1997: 60−65) wrote that ‘the press may not be successful much of the time in telling people what to think, but it is stunningly successful in telling its readers what to think about’. What has changed since this observation was made is television’s ability to bring foreign policy problems to the attention of policy-makers much more rapidly and graphically. 5 It is worth noting that the difference between constructing a conflict and ‘creating facts’ is very narrow (Moorcraft, 1999: 8).

The works of Boyer and Drache (1996); Weiss (1998), Hirst and Thompson (1999) develop this argument. In between these two dichotomous approaches comes the more subtle understanding of the processes of globalisation that recognises that profound changes have taken place in the global organisation of capital but insists on the centrality of states in the processes of globalisation (see, for example Mittelman, 1997; Panitch, 1997; Dicken, 1998; Cerny, 2000; Germain, 2000; Scholte, 2000). It is worth noting also that analysts studying globalisation, such as the ones mentioned above, tend to focus on the impact of globalisation on relatively strong cohesive states.

Hence, when policy is unclear or ill-defined the media indeed have some influence on policy. On the other hand, ‘the media effect on policy decreases as the clarity of definition and articulation of strategic interest increases’. Accordingly, significant media impact can be detected ‘only at moments of policy panic when governments have no robust policy’ or ‘where policy-making is weak or cynical’ (Minear, Scott and Weiss, 1996: 73); Gowing (2000: 210). There is therefore, as Gowing (1996: 85) argues, an important distinction between the tactical impact of TV – its localised, immediate impact – and its medium-to-long term strategic impact on overall government policy-making (emphasis in the original).
