The Theory of the Burglar Alarm Model John Zaller states that the public does not need to be highly informed about every single problem or dissenting views about issues He says that the people really need a watchdog within the media that will only give the most prevalent problems attention and newsworthiness Zaller suggests that the media engage in factchecking the information put out there by government officials and political figures as well as interviewing and challenging them and acting out investigative journalism Criticizing the Burglar Alarm Has the media as a watchdog failed This criticism questions whether or not the media actually does what Zaller is proposing it is questionable as to whether or not the media engages in the practices it should in order to provide quality news about the most important current issues to the public The Bargain of Newsworthiness Brian J Fogarty presents a model which states that the news the public sees every day is actually a product of careful negotiations made between the press and elected government officials The process is frequently hidden from the public making it very difficult to measure exactly how political news is created and shared Effectively the Burglar Alarm as a theory for news reporting in modern day society is nonexistent However Fogarty does suggest that even though the government has an advantage and larger say in what news is reported the public should work to increase the outlets that news reporters have to choose from therefore allowing for people to exercise judgment on when the news can and cannot be accountable
