The very fact', he said, 'that the press keeps asking if the President is going to send troops to EI Salvador makes it an issue even though Mr Reagan has stated he is not planning such action'. The upshot, said Meese, was that Senate Minority Leader Robert Byrd sought to 'tie the President's hands'. While one must resist the temptation to draw unwarranted general conclusions from these examples, they do illustrate the sensitivity ofthe government - particularly in the White House - to popular opinion as refleeted by the press and television.

The White House, he said, had responded to 'the warning flags . . first published in the columns, opinion pieces and editorials'. In foreign policy, Presidential Counsellor Edwin Meese told a group of journalists earlier in 1982 that the impact ofthe media is especially noticeable. 'The press', he said, 'acts as intermediary between the public and the government as a national interpreter of events'. He pointed to EI Salvador to illustrate the practical etTects ofthis. 'The very fact', he said, 'that the press keeps asking if the President is going to send troops to EI Salvador makes it an issue even though Mr Reagan has stated he is not planning such action'.
