The aim of this paper is to present a basic framework which takes into account the importance of political governance and the media in influencing the economy and determining its actual course. In particular, this framework may be of help in elucidating the complex role of the media in contemporary democratic societies. For this purpose, a simple diagrammatic model is constructed and used for explanation. Its basis is a distinction among four main elements with potentially different interests: The political governance personnel, the business class, the wider public as consumers and voters, and the media. The first three form the three corners of a triangle while the media play an intermediating role among them. The presentation of the model is illustrated with examples from Greece.
