49 3 Media Can we imagine a world without media? Over the years I have asked my students to spend time without engaging in any forms of media: TV, films, radio, social media and advertising. At first I suggested they do this for a week, which they struggled to do. I have incrementally reduced the amount of time I ask them to spend without media to the point that I ask them now only to try 24 hours. But this is still a real challenge for them to achieve. Indeed, the longest periods they have generally been able to manage have consisted of switching off a

International Perspectives
Editor:

Media representations of ageing play a role in stereotype formation and even reinforce them. Encountering these stereotypes can negatively impact the self-esteem, health status, physical wellbeing and cognitive performance of older people.

This international collection examines different dimensions of ageing and ageism in a range of media. Chapters include explorations of the UK media during the COVID-19 pandemic; age, gender and mental health in Ghana; advertising in Brazil; magazines in Canada; Taiwanese newspapers; comics, graphic novels and more.

Bringing together leading scholars, this book critically considers differences in media portrayals and how older adults use and interact with the media.

265 FOURTEEN The media Annelise Russell and Maxwell McCombs The role of the mass media in political science is well known—from measures of campaign communications, priming effects on mass publics, and its increasing role in spurring social movements and cultural shifts. The media is an integral part of political life, but as the role of media expands and changes we must consider more than just political consequences, but also those of public policy and governance. It is easy to make associations between media and politics when Tina Fey is doing her famous

Exploring the Role of News Media in Complex Systems of Governance

First published as a special issue of Policy & Politics, this updated volume explores the intersections between governance and media in western democracies, which have undergone profound recent changes. Many governmental powers have been shifted toward a host of network parties such as NGOs, state enterprises, international organizations, autonomous agencies, and local governments. Governments have developed complex networks for service delivery and they have a strategic interest in the news media as an arena where their interests can be served and threatened.

How do the media relate to and report on complex systems of government? How do the various governance actors respond to the media and what are the effects on their policies? This book considers the impact of media-related factors on governance, policy, public accountability and the attribution of blame for failures.

PART I Framing and constructing ageing in media reporting

Avoid the Moist Breath Zone

New Zealand’s relatively recent decriminalisation of sex work, and its unusual success in combatting COVID-19, have both attracted international media interest. This accessibly-written book uses the lens of news media coverage to consider the pandemic’s impacts on both sex workers and public perceptions of the industry.

Analysing the stigmatisation of sex work in both short- and long-term contexts, the book addresses the impacts of intersectional oppressions or marginalisations on sex workers, and the ways sex work advocacy relates to other social justice movements. It unpicks how New Zealand’s decriminalisation approach functions under stress, offering valuable information for advocates, activists and scholars.

13 CHAPTER ONE Governance and the media: exploring the linkages B. Guy Peters Anyone who has been at least half awake for the past several decades would find it difficult to deny that the media has a significant impact on the capacity to govern and the style in which governance is produced. This influence can be seen most readily in electoral politics, but it is also pervasive in other aspects of governing. Presidents and prime ministers have news conferences, and they and other ministers invest substantial energy in ‘spin’ and in attempting to shape the

Guy Peters, bgpeters@pitt.ed University of Pittsburgh, USA To understand contemporary governance one needs to be cognisant of the manner in which media, and perhaps more generally, information, is used as a component of the process. The fundamental contention of the mediatisation literature is that institutions
