Because a ﬁeld is a structured space between these two poles, an actor’s location within the ﬁeld indicates the kinds of internal and external pressures that come to bear on an actor and the amount of cultural capital it wields (Bourdieu 1998a). Commercial, mainstream media outlets are located near the heteronomous pole because they are disproportionately inﬂuenced by economic considerations, while “serious” media are situated near the autonomous pole. Outlets, at either extreme or located anywhere in between, strive to build legitimacy in the ﬁeld through the accumulation of economic or cultural capital.
Likewise, groups that seek to fundamentally alter social structure and institutions may perceive mainstream media as hostile to their causes and avoid these outlets altogether. Organizational identity shapes the options available to a group responding to bad press and losing issues (Dilemmas 2 and 3). Organizations with elaborated identities as well as credibility with (and access to) journalists are far more likely to remain silent on an issue than groups ﬁghting to get into the mainstream. While the former will have other opportunities to inﬂuence media coverage, the latter may not.
A group with an elaborated identity will be best positioned to craft credible frames because it has a broader repertoire of cultural language from which to draw, making it easier for the group to match its interpretation of political moments with an observable reality. In contrast, an organization with a restricted identity will have difﬁculty crafting frames that generate widespread support. A group with a particularistic understanding of its issues, solutions, and goals often has difﬁculty “stretching” its linguistic repertoire to reﬂect historical contingencies, which, ultimately, limits the resonance of its frames and its potential support (Rohlinger 2002).
