Abstract
Taking the internet as an example, this dissertation analyzed the influence of mass media on the formulation and implementation of public policy. Compared with the public policy, the mass media play the intermediary and supervisory role and displays strong cohesion for its effect on public policy. In modern society, the anonymous, open, free and initiative internet further broadens the mass media’s influence on the public policy. However, it should not be neglected that the mass media could in turn weaken the government authority and even affect the independence and accuracy of the setting of public policy because of our unsound legal system and the indifferent political sense of the public.
