There is no conclusion so far,no evidence whether the media does influence policy decision.lf there was a foregone conclusion,then there would be no need to do such a research, Note that we may find out that the media doesnt have any impact at all,but still its us who need to find out.Let me give you some irrellevent examples where the media was either influencial or failed. SUCCESS; Media images and coverage of the Somalia crises persuaded the US gvt to act quick on the crises
FAILURE; Media coverage on the Bill Clinton scandalous affair failed to persuade voters that Clinton's tattered moral fibres would make him a bad political leader.
To err is humane..But when the eraser wears out ahead of the pencil,you are overdoing it.
