Analyzing Corruption Possibilities in the Gaze of the Media
AbstractIn this paper analyze the economic incentives that govern the strategic relationship between the government and the independent media has been analysed using a consistent analytical framework.The analysis focuses on the extent to which the‘free’ press can act as a deterrent to corruption in governance. It has been found out that although ‘press freedom’ is indeed important as stressed in the existing literature, both mutually profitable cover-up arrangements as well as the government’s ability to ‘manage’ the media’s allegations tend to have a substantial negative impact on the media’s role as an effective watchdog. Also, more competition in the media sector need not necessarily translate into increased deterrence from corruption.[DiscussionPaperNo.2001/30]
