How can I say visiting channel 4 news as part of my work experience (even though it was just a day) links to me wanting to study a course in politics and IR? How does the media/news relate???

The media/news relates a great deal! You witness politics from the view that it’s going to be delivered to the public. This is extremely important for a number of reasons the most obvious being that the method and tone in which the media decide to deliver a certain piece of news then predicts how the public will infer that news and how they will react. It’s very important that during ‘scary’ events such as the possibility of war etc. the media can soften the blow and deliver coherent, factual news in a sensible manner.

Otherwise all politicians announcements would cause mass mania and hysteria which in a country this size could be catastrophic for the government.
