I think you have it backwards

The media tells the people what their "will" is. Perfect example was on Super Tuesday in 2008. My local newspaper, and every paper that uses Associated Press, had a big 2-page spread with primary candidates and their positions. Guess what, no Ron Paul. They even included a couple that had dropped out (Guiulliani and Thompson I believe). The Associated Press was actively keeping Ron Paul's lone anti-war position secret from the Sheeple.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain
