Above, at least to myself, is a classic case of agenda setting by the media. The above article highlights the lack of coverage by the media of our current Administrations use of drones. Through the use of agenda setting, the media has been telling us not WHAT to think about but about what NOT to think about. Though the coverage of drones has double since 2009, the number of reports is paltry compared to the weight of the issue of foreign drone attacks. How is the citizenship supposed to stay properly informed if the gatekeepers do not let information through?
