Congress, the media and interest groups
in The United States Congress

This chapter discusses the media and interest groups, and their impact on Congress. It first studies the important role media play in the American political process, including the evolution of modern media and the conflict between providing serious news/information and providing entertainment. The chapter then turns to interest groups, which are groups of individuals or organisations that gather together to promote or defend their shared interests, and looks at the strategies these groups use to influence Congress, which are the outsider and insider strategies.
