The media and politicians use different metaphors to tap into different situations and for the most part produce a different outcome. It is important in reading this book to understand the complicated nature of the media and political life to one degree or the other. This book was written to give the true nature and reality that people on the Bo-po-graph (Bottom substructure of the political landscape, which is beneath the political world) face each and every day. This view from the Bopograph gives an illogical quality that reveals itself from the ongoing political and cultural perspective. Politicians and the news media over time have become very skilled at taking the public’s temperature and tailoring their comments to meet the public’s needs. They learned this skill thought trial and error and their ability to get a feel for a given situation in the news or political event. Some politician may in a given situation need to change the way he or she thinks to get a handle on the political situation that is happening around them Because of this it is believed that the media and politician can govern and solve problems. Some have said this understanding of the political environment lends itself to a transformative mindset.
