Description

In this pathbreaking work, now with a new introduction, Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky show that, contrary to the usual image of the news media as cantankerous, obstinate, and ubiquitous in their search for truth and defense of justice, in their actual practice they defend the economic, social, and political agendas of the privileged groups that dominate domestic society, the state, and the global order.

Based on a series of case studies - including the media's dichotomous treatment of "worthy" versus "unworthy" victims, "legitimizing" and "meaningless" Third World elections, and devastating critiques of media coverage of the US wars against Indochina - Herman and Chomsky draw on decades of criticism and research to propose a Propaganda Model to explain the media's behavior and performance. Their new introduction updates the Propaganda Model and the earlier case studies, and it discusses several other applications.

Chomsky is a genius.

He is connects the dots and let's you decide what the truth is. Loved it.

American media a sham

Enlightening demonstration on how the American public perception evolved to support it's own corrupt and failing capitalist regime.

a staggering indictment of the US media

Givin discussions of " fakenews" this book provides a thorough background of the extraordinary negligence of the US media. the authors follow several case studies of American Foreign Wars and the lack of critical press coverage in print and on television. It reveals an appalling double standard whose primary aim is to build support for American imperialism.

the authors posit a propaganda model for the American Media, and they validate the predictions of this model with several case studies. one drawback of the author's analysis is that it is exclusively focused on Foreign Wars. I would like to have seen more analysis of domestic issues.

for pros

complicated book. I think it's kinda made more for people who know a lot already about the subject; like journalists.

Disturbing view

A well reasoned argument for the argument for a very obedient media and how they help mold public opinion to government ends.

Eye opening

This was a tough book to Read, but the audio version made it much more digestible.

I've listened to nearly every Chomsky lecture available so not much of this shocked me; but it was very interesting to see it all unpacked like this.

Should be required reading, perhaps in some sort of abbreviated form.

Didn’t work well in audio format. Book's better

Yes - struggle is a good worrd. The detail is too complex to keep straight while casually listening.

Actions of our Government Agencies in foreign land

Insightful reading, gained a better understanding of how MSM can promote or deny the actions of our Government Agencies and senior leaders in foreign and domestic actions against the people.

Great Work

More important than ever is reading this book essential. Chomskys only fault is he doesn't present a in depth analysis of the media over time. His analysis is only of the U.S media in the late 20rh century. He also provides too many examples and not enough discussion on his propaganda model.

Eye opening.

Any additional comments?

Wow. Literally everything I thought was true about the media, about past wars, about our policies, all lies. I would say this book should be a mandated read in every public high school (at least) but I know that’s not going to happen. But this book is truly a must read for those who truly want to understand the nature and foundations of our manufactured consensus reality.

A must read

Provides great insights and a corporate media. Once you learn about the propaganda model you won’t be able to help but see it’s impact on most news channels. And important for anybody watching the news

Deep

the narrator sounds like Sergeant Joe Friday on the old TV show Drag Net. Very cool... Noam Chomsky has the credibility​ to not back up everything he says with endless examples. No amount of research that supports his profound assertions would convince anyone who does not except that. On the other hand, far be it from Chomsky to make unsupported assertions.
