The print media may be on life-support but they still have the capacity to influence policymakers. Check out this neat catch by Christine Parthemore over at Natural Security. Her post is

a brief tale of two seemingly unremarkable Time magazine articles that appear to have had undue influence on two members (including the chairman) of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

BTW, Natural Security is a smart new blog from the Center for a New American Security. I especially love their fresh look at older media, everything from a 1970s sci-fi movie to a 1999 scholarly article on the emerging environmental security discipline.
