Pagina 47 - Prepare in advance and provide background material on complex risk issues. Do not hesitate to follow up on stories with praise or criticism, as warranted. Try to establish long-term relationships of trust with specific editors and reporters. Point to Consider • The media are frequently more interested in politics than in risk, more interested in simplicity than in complexity, and more interested in danger than in safety.

For example, most of us feel safer driving than riding as a passenger. Our feeling has nothing to do with the data- our driving record versus the driving record of others. Similarly, people tend to feel more comfortable with environmental risks they can do something about themselves, rather than having to rely on government to protect them.
