1. From the development of not one, but many 24/7 basic cable news channels, to the phenomenal growth of politically charged internet websites, the development of today’s modern, mass media has profoundly affected American politics.

Using at least two specific examples, address the influence of America’s modern, mass media on campaigns and elections.

Does media influence help or hinder our representational, democratic government? Defend your answer.

2. According to federal finance laws, individual contributions to federal candidates are capped at predetermined amounts.

An example: you can contribute $2,500 to a Congressional candidate for each primary, runoff, and general election. (http://www.fec.gov/)

In contrast, an individual (you) can contribute unlimited amounts of funds towards a Political Action Committee (PAC).

According to the Federal Election Commission,

“The term "political action committee" (PAC) refers to two distinct types of political committees registered with the FEC: separate segregated funds (SSFs) and non-connected committees. Basically, SSFs are political committees established and administered by corporations, labor unions, membership organizations or trade associations. These committees can only solicit contributions from individuals associated with connected or sponsoring organization. By contrast, non-connected committees--as their name suggests--are not sponsored by or connected to any of the aforementioned entities and are free to solicit contributions from the general public.”

Using at least two specific examples, address the influence of political action committees on campaigns and elections.

Do political action committees help or hinder our democracy? Defend your answer.
