'in the realm of the mass media, of course, publicity has changed its meaning. orginally a function of public opinion, it has become an attribute of whatever attracts puiblic opinion: public relations and efforts recently baptized "publicity work" are aimed at producing such publicity. the public spehere itself appears as a specific domain--the public domain versus the private. sometimes the public appears simply as that sector of public opinion that happens to be opposed to the authorities. depending on the circumstances, either the organs of the state or the media, like the press, which provide communication among members of the public, maybe be counted as "public organs."'
