"Gatekeeper" - picks which issues they feel should get coverage. Those are the only issues the public knows of b/c of their coverage, and the public thinks they're the most important.
"Scorekeeper" - keeps track of the politicians' race, or tabs on the war, etc.
"Watchdog" - picks up on candidate's private life, some times makes them look good, but usually is something scandalous and hurtful.
