Abstract or Summary
  • Whether media plays a contributory or a conduit role in the policy process has been a salient focus among policy scholars. If media plays a contributory role in the policy process, it not only shares similar policy core beliefs with advocacy coalitions, but also drafts and disseminates stories including policy core beliefs that shape policy outcomes. On the contrary, if media serves a conduit role, media transmits information, including the divergent policy core beliefs of multiple participants in policy debates. This research aims to provide empirical evidence to determine the role of media in the policy process. This research looks at the California End-of-Life Option Act case and content analyzes news articles from two media outlets with opposing ideologies, the liberal “Sacramento Bee” and the conservative “Orange County Register” using Narrative Policy Framework (NPF).
