There are many and varied actors involved in politics. Some of the examples are the Prime Minister, the staff that surrounds him, the executives of a political party, or leading members of the ministries and government offices. This study is intended as an investigation of the relations between those political actors and the media. Taking for example the movement for the parliamentary motion of non-confidence against the Kan Cabinet in 2011, it has been found out that while there existed no communication among political actors, the media played a part of being "a passive actor", serving as a bridge among them. And also it has been revealed that in some cases the media worked independently as "an active actor."

Mass Media gather public administrative information through press clubs. This research aims to show the reality of the press club system by comparing press released information from Yokohama City Hall with actually reported contents of seven newspapers. The major analysis results include the followings : (1)Out of 192 "Kisha-Happyo," press releases, 49 were covered in articles. None of the rest, nearly three quarters, were reported. (2)The seven papers shared "Cat Copy Reporting" tendency. "Cat Copy Reporting" or "Yokonarabi Reporting" refers to the way that media report news following one another. (3)Not a few "Dokuji-Dane," exclusive reports, existed. The research brought out the mass media's attitude that they write exclusive reports which they believe are necessary while making efficient use of the press club system.
