The media is a powerful force in American politics.
But the way that it is shaped by the candidates and parties in power is not always the way we would like it to be.
For example, the way the media is structured in the U.S. has long been a problem.
As it turns out, the media’s power to shape elections and the way our political discourse is shaped is rooted in a number of factors.
In this first of a two-part series, we explore how these forces have contributed to a media environment that has helped elect Donald Trump and kept the status quo in place.
The Media as an Institution: In 2016, there were 3.3 million television viewers and about 1.4 million radio viewers.
The TV audience was a fraction of the radio audience, which had more than 8 times the number of people.
Radio was dominated by conservative talk radio.
The cable networks, which are controlled by media companies that are largely owned by the wealthy, have their own programming and are controlled largely by their ownership groups.
There are other forms of media, too, including online media and the online news industry.
While the media has had to change in order to serve the needs of today’s political environment, it has also had to evolve to be more responsive to the changing ways that Americans are consuming news and information.
The media has also tended to be a more partisan organization than other forms, as evidenced by the fact that in 2016, it took a very narrow victory in the presidential election for the Republican Party to take back control of Congress.
The political parties have often tried to balance the need for political and media coverage with a need to control and control access to information, something that has been an increasingly hard sell in the years since the election of Donald Trump.
In recent years, the Supreme Court has signaled that it will likely be open to considering whether there should be limits on the extent to which the media can use its power to influence elections.
As we’ll see, the justices have already made a number the issue in a series of cases, and the court will likely weigh in again this term on the issue.
But it’s not just the media that is increasingly in the crosshairs.
Political parties are also more powerful than ever, as they continue to have a significant role in influencing elections.
The American public is becoming more interested in elections, especially in states like California and New York, where the public is not satisfied with the outcome of presidential elections.
In the last election, Democrats carried New York by more than 40 points and held on to control of both houses of Congress, while Republicans captured a razor-thin majority in Congress and took the White House.
It’s not surprising that Democrats would be worried about the possibility of a Republican winning the White Senate or Congress, which is the seat of the Democratic Senate in the House.
While Trump’s win was not exactly unexpected, it did seem to indicate that Democrats have the upper hand.
What’s more, the electoral college, which has a lot of weight in the way politics are played in the United States, is more or less fixed.
The popular vote is largely a function of who wins the popular vote in a state.
If the election were held today, Democrats would have control of the House and the Senate, and Trump would likely have lost.
But even if that were to happen, Democrats are in a much better position to take control of these legislative chambers than Republicans, as the current Senate map shows.
If we look at the states with more than one electoral vote, the numbers are even more striking.
The four states that make up the “Big Five” — California, New York (including the Bronx), Massachusetts, and Michigan — have a combined electoral college total of 435, while the states that have less than two electoral votes have a total of 639 electoral votes.
California, which won the popular election, had just 11 electoral votes compared to the five states with the most electoral votes: New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts.
Meanwhile, the remaining states — Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Wisconsin — had just six electoral votes each, with the three states with less than one vote each having a combined total of 19 electoral votes — Nevada, North Dakota, and Washington.
For some perspective, the next closest states to the Big Five were Wyoming, Minnesota, and Illinois.
The Power of Big Media: The media, along with many other sources, are influential in shaping public opinion and, in turn, public policy.
The way that a candidate’s position is represented on the media, and his or her position on other issues, have an enormous influence on the way voters respond to and respond to issues and issues in general.
But how they respond to these issues and the political context in which they are presented has an equally powerful effect on how the public will respond to the issues themselves.
The press has often played a role in this process.
For instance, during the 2000 election
