Money, Media and Minds: Coverage or Cover Up?
by grtv

Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media (1988), by Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky, is an analysis of the news media, arguing that the mass media of the United States "are effective and powerful ideological institutions that carry out a system-supportive propaganda function by reliance on market forces, internalized assumptions, and self-censorship, and without overt coercion".

The propaganda model is a conceptual model in political economy advanced by Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky that states how propaganda, including systemic biases, function in mass media. The model seeks to explain how populations are manipulated and how consent for economic, social and political policies is "manufactured" in the public mind due to this propaganda.

The theory posits that the way in which news is structured (through advertising, media ownership, government sourcing and others) creates an inherent conflict of interest which acts as propaganda for undemocratic forces.

Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using?
I'm looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time
deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then moost blogs and
I'm looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for
being off-topic but I had too ask!

I've been browsing online more than three hours nowadays, yet
I nedver discovered any fascinating article like yours.
It is pretty value enough for me. Personally, iif all web owners and bloggers
made excellent content as you did, the net might be a lot more useful than ever before.
