There is a missing variable in our system, however, and it potentially affects the indexing path more than the agenda-­setting path. Information about policy-­relevant matters is not confined to media–policymaker interactions. Information is at least partially exogenous to this system, and it is therefore possible that both the media and policymakers are responding to this partially exogenous information stream.
