The media affect the issues the public thinks are important by the number of stories that report on the issue or the amount of time they spend covering. The control of the means of communication means of controlling how people think and perceive the reality in which they live. By controlling the amount of stories and the amount of time that these stories are shown, the importance that people give to certain issues can be controlled, diverted, in certain occasions, the attention of the people towards other issues. So the correct answer is: by the number of stories that report on a topic or the amount of time they spend covering a problem.
