The mass media serve as a system for communicating messages and symbols to the general populace. It is their function to amuse, entertain, and inform, and to inculcate individuals with the values, beliefs, and codes of behavior that will integrate them into the institutional structures of the larger society. In a world of concentrated wealth and major conflicts of class interest, to fulfill this role requires systematic propaganda. In countries where the levers of power are in the hands of a state bureaucracy, the monopolistic control over the media, often supplemented by official censorship, makes it clear that the media serve the ends of a dominant elite. It is much more difficult to see a propaganda system at work where the media are private and formal censorship is absent. This is especially true where the media actively compete, periodically attack and expose corporate and governmental malfeasance, and aggressively portray themselves as spokesmen for free speech and the general community interest. What is not evident and remains undiscussed in the media is the limited nature of such critiques, as well as the huge inequality in command of resources, and its effect both on access to a private media system and on its behavior and performance.
Noam Chomsky pp Cite as. Published in and written in collaboration with communications scholar Edward Herman, Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media presented a clear-cut and uncompromising critique of the US media. In essence, their provocatively titled propaganda model argued that mainstream US media output were being driven by corporate business interests and reliance upon advertising as a source of profit, while being constrained by over-reliance upon official sources, bullying right-wing think tanks, and Cold War ideological imperatives. As a consequence, US news output presented a truncated and fundamentally distorted view of the world, and one that served the interests of US political and economic elites. Within the framework of the propaganda model, enemies of the US government were highlighted by US media as abusers of human rights, undemocratic, and belligerent, while the crimes of the US government and its allies were largely ignored. Most importantly, underlying the framing of all media reporting was the representation of the United States as inherently benign, peace-loving, and the indisputable leader of humanity. At its very worst, this misrepresentation of reality enabled wars such as Vietnam, which involved the deaths of millions of people, to be understood by the US public as a noble and dignified war in pursuit of freedom and democracy.
The Propaganda model of media control was introduced by Edward. This theory states how propaganda works in a mass media. The model tries to understand how the population is manipulated, and how the social, economic, political attitudes are fashioned in the minds of people through propaganda. Herman and Chomsky mostly concentrated on American population and media for their research but this theory is universally applicable. According to the theory media operates as a business which sells its products readers and subscribers to other business entities that do their advertisements in media, rather than performing the function of disseminating news for the public. Here the news is being misshaped and reformed from its original form. Herman and Chomsky call the factors which misshape news as filters.
Speaking on a wide range of subjects, from democracy and human rights to the role of intellectuals in society, he captivated audience after audience with his lucid challenge of accepted political analyses, his uncompromising commitment to social equality and individual freedom, the breadth of his scholarship, and the engaging style of his lectures. Back at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he responded by email to some questions relating to the major themes of his India lectures. On democracy, the issue is more complex. The UD is solemnly acclaimed by all states though supported by none, to my knowledge. The US, for example, has one of the worst records in the world even in ratifying international conventions designed to implement the UD, and its few ratifications are conditioned so as to make them unenforceable.
The propaganda model is a conceptual model in political economy advanced by Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky to explain how propaganda and systemic biases function in corporate mass media. The model seeks to explain how populations are manipulated and how consent for economic, social, and political policies, both foreign and domestic, is "manufactured" in the public mind due to this propaganda. The theory posits that the way in which corporate media is structured e. First presented in their book Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media , the propaganda model views corporate media as businesses interested in the sale of a product—readers and audiences—to other businesses advertisers rather than the pursuit of quality journalism in service of the public.
In his latest interview collection, Noam Chomsky offers insights into the institutions that shape the public mind in the service of power and profit.
And it's not a new war, its an old war. Furthermore, its a class-conscious war, everywhere, but, specifically in the United States, where there happens to be a very free country, but which happens to have a highly class-conscious business-class, and always has. And it's very free and open, so youve got a lot of information about it.

Поторопись, - крикнул ей вдогонку Стратмор, - и ты еще успеешь к ночи попасть в Смоки-Маунтинс. От неожиданности Сьюзан застыла на месте.
Танкадо приближается справа, Халохот - между деревьев слева. - У нас почти не осталось времени, - сказал Фонтейн. - Давайте ближе к сути дела.
Никакой Цифровой крепости не существует! - сказал Стратмор. - Что. - Не существует алгоритма, не поддающегося взлому. - Нет, существует.
Сьюзан отвернулась. - Не имеет значения. Кровь не. Выпустите меня отсюда.
Да нет, - замялся. - Я просто… - Сьюзан Флетчер. - Женщина улыбнулась и протянула ему тонкую изящную руку.
Я же просил меня подбросить. ГЛАВА 59 Сьюзан протянула руку, и коммандер Стратмор помог ей подняться по лестнице в помещение шифровалки. А перед глазами у нее стоял образ Фила Чатрукьяна, его искалеченного и обгоревшего тела, распростертого на генераторах, а из головы не выходила мысль о Хейле, притаившемся в лабиринтах шифровалки. Правда открылась со всей очевидностью: Хейл столкнул Чатрукьяна.
Если до этого Хейл не знал, что они идут, то теперь отлично это понял. Стратмор нажал несколько кнопок и, прочитав полученное сообщение, тихо застонал. Из Испании опять пришли плохие новости - не от Дэвида Беккера, а от других, которых он послал в Севилью. В трех тысячах миль от Вашингтона мини-автобус мобильного наблюдения мчался по пустым улицам Севильи.
Он слишком долго обделял. И ради. Чтобы увидеть, как какой-то молодой профессор украл его мечту. Стратмор холил и лелеял Сьюзан, оберегал. Он заслужил .
Я уверен. Вы должны… Сьюзан вырвала руку и посмотрела на него с возмущением. - Мне кажется, коммандер приказал вам уйти.
