Alternate title:The propaganda model of news
Summary:Noam Chomsky, Edward Herman, and Justin Lewis discuss Chomsky and Herman's comprehensive framework for understanding how the news is produced and in whose interests it works. Using examples of news coverage of events in the United States and around the world, they argue that the U.S. news media is subordinated to corporate and conservative interests and is not liberal, but rather controlled by elites.
