Example text

In short, the more an organization’s identity aligns with the logic of mainstream media, the stronger its reputation will be. A group that has a media structure, boasts a credentialed or publicly recognized spokesperson, advocates for incremental change, and possesses an elaborated identity will have a relatively strong reputation in mainstream media, and will have more and better opportunities to shape how its issues are presented to the public. There are two additional points worth making about reputation.

Organizational density and diversity, for example, can help forward a movement’s goals (Armstrong 2002; Minkoff 1993; Minkoff 1999). In the media arena, organizational density and diversity may simply mean that a group has more competitors to contend with when it wants media attention. Groups in organizationally diverse and dense movements, consequently, may employ media strategies that groups in less populated movements would not (or could not) consider. For instance, organizations looking to use mass media to build their coffers, membership, and influence may do so by attacking established and politically respected allies, arguing that they better represent movement goals and are poised to bring about political change.

Reputational evaluations are made comparatively (Whetten and Mackey 2002). Journalists determine the reputation of one organization in part through their evaluations of its allies. As a result, an organization may have a more difficult time establishing and maintaining a strong reputation in the journalistic field if it is part of a movement that is dense with organizations that also fit the institutional bill. This is true even for an organization whose identity generally fits with the demands of the field.
