Abstract

We investigate the role of media in shaping the evolution of meaning and its effect on Members of Parliament (MPs) resignations during the 2009 British Parliamentary Expense Scandal. We find support for media socially constructing the meaning of the scandal. MPs who are implicated centrally faced increased pressures to resign.
