Summary
"This is the first sustained comparative examination of the importance of media attention on the provision of economic assistance. Drawing on agency theory, the authors argue that democratic bureaucracies will be responsive to the content of the news media. Bureaucrats, often seen as insulated and unresponsive, adjust their actions to match domestic political demands and the news media serve as a simple, reliable and inexpensive indicator of the domestic political importance of a subject. Cross-national in scope, this book looks at the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, France and Japan, facilitating a nuanced understanding of the interaction of international and domestic politics as mediated by the media. The findings demonstrate clear, substantial and robust evidence of bureaucratic responsiveness to the news media."--BOOK JACKET
