The role of the mass media in influencing political process Introduction The following report will investigate the role of the mass media in politics and will aim to prove the hypothesis that the mass media reinforces existing stereotypes and prejudices in society. The modern media play a central role not only within the political processes of every type, ranging from coverage of major political events and institutions to effects on campaigns and elections but also in any individual's life, providing many necessary information services as well as offering possibilities for self-enlightenment and entertainment.
Based on these numbers, we can infer that much of the difference between the junior and senior officer ranks in was probably historical. However, we cannot rule out the possibility that some of the diversity gap resulted from lower rates of career progression for minority and women officers who entered service at various points in time.
To disentangle the effects of increasing diversity at entry with the effects of any subsequent differences in career progression, one must track groups of entering officers over time and measure the promotion and retention rates for different racial, ethnic, and gender groups.
A November General Accounting Office GAO report included a more direct analysis of racial and gender disparities in accessions, assignments, and promotions.
The report found some disparities, with the most common ones for officers occurring in promotions. The purpose of this project is to add information and understanding. The first strand analyzed officer personnel records to determine whether minority and female officers had been promoted and retained at the same rates as white male officers.
The second strand consisted of interviews with individuals who manage officers and select them for promotion, and both interviews and focus groups involving middle-ranking officers primarily grades O-3 and O The interviews with the officer management staff in each service focused on the policies and procedures that direct officer careers.
Our purpose in talking to members of promotion boards was to understand the board process and identify key factors leading to promotion for all officers. The interviews and focus groups with midcareer officers explored how officers generally progress in their careers and real or perceived differences in the experiences of minority and female officers.

Most of the minority officers in the interviews and focus groups were black, but some Hispanic officers participated as well. The data analysis evaluated the personnel records of officers from seven commissioning cohorts: We visited four bases, one from each service, to talk to a cross-section of officers in the middle ranks.
These discussions, which were conducted in mid, were carried out through oneon-one interviews and in focus groups organized by race and gender. It included data for the cohort, but we dropped this cohort from our analysis because it had extensive data errors that could not be easily corrected.
Introduction 5 We talked to white male officers as well as minority and female officers. Our data analysis considered all of these groups.
Other research has found that military career experiences differ for blacks and other minorities. Both study components only considered officers not belonging to professional occupations. Officers in the professions—e.
This restriction to line officers most affected our analysis of female officers because one-half of them are in professional occupations, primarily in health. In contrast, just over onefifth of both white and black officers are in these occupations.
Chapter Three describes our analysis of officer personnel records and Chapters Four and Five summarize the results of our interviews and focus groups with midcareer officers.
Both chapters include a summary of the analytic methods used, but they focus on the results. The data for FY are similar; whites decreased to 85 percent and other minorities increased to 4 percent.
The final chapter integrates the findings from the two analyses in an overall assessment of the career progression of black and female officers. All four services also have programs to allow promising young enlisted personnel to complete their college degree and earn a commission.
Most new officers are entering military service for the first time, but some have prior enlisted service. Service Academies The three service academies4 provide officer candidates with a rigorous academic program and a complete immersion into military life.Intersectional approaches assume that an analysis of social groups based solely on one category, for example gender, is insufficient for developing a nuanced understanding of the lived experience of disempowerment, marginalization and stereotyping.
