Mr. Birnbaum talked about the relationship between lobbying and the media, focusing on his own experiences with lobbyists. He also discussed the modi operandi of various lobbyists and lobbying organizations. He said that because the most important consideration of political officeholders is re-election, the greatest influence on their decisions is their constituents, and thus the task of the lobbyist is to persuade politicians that a majority of their constituents hold certain views. Following prepared remarks, Mr. Birnbaum responded to questions from the audience. close
