Manufacturing Consent The Political Economy of the Mass Media Free download ´ 102 Ningless” Third World elections and devastating critiues 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 These include the manner in which the media covered the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement and subseuent Mexican financial meltdown. I ve been a journalist for 15 years now and I ve often wondered how it is that the mass media in the United States manage to project the image of being defenders of democracy while actually deterring itHaving just read Manufacturing Consent The Political Economy of the Mass Media by Noam Chomsky and Edward Herman I finally understand as thoroughly as I ve always wanted toWhere to begin for starters have you ever heard of worthy and unworthy victimsDid you know that the press was far less the watchdog it was praised for being in covering the Watergate scandalRemember that Vietnam War documentary filmed by an entity called Freedom House that essentially argued the media were responsible for losing the war in Vietnam because they were too negative and anti government and biased and anti war In some circles that argument still holds weight having taken root in the American Mind as an almost obvious given It s total and complete bullshit as Chomsky and Herman showTo say the authors are scrupulous in taking on the above issues and much is an understatement This book is a true work of scholarship extremely well researched heavily foot noted and filled with ample evidence to back up its central argument that the mass media in the US operate on a foundation of systematic propagandaChomsky and Herman write 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 reuires systematic propagandaThe maddening thing about this system is that unlike a totalitarian state or one in which power is largely concentrated in some monopolistic bureaucratic form it is much difficult to see a propaganda system hard at work where there is no formal censorship and media are largely privately heldThis explains why media compete and sometimes expose corporate or government corruption and portray themselves via their own channels of advertising as looking out for the little guy But as Chomsky and Herman write What is not evident and remains undiscussed in the media is the limited nature of such critiues as well as the huge ineuality in command of resources and its effect both on access to a private media system and on its behavior and performanceA propaganda model the authors argue focuses on the ineuality of wealth and power and its multilevel effects on mass media interests and choices It traces the routes by which money and power are able to filter out the news fit to print marginalize dissent and allow the government and dominant private interests to get their messages across to the publicThe essential ingredients of the US propaganda model are as follows 1 the size concentrated ownership owner wealth and profit orientation of the dominant mass media firms 2 advertising as a primary income source of the mass media 3 the reliance of the media on information provided by government business and experts funded and approved by these primary sources and agents of power 4 flak as a means of disciplining the media and 5 anticommunism as a national religion and control mechanismIn example after example Chomsky and Herman show how these ingredients interact and reinforce each other Take the issue of worthy and unworthy victims The mainstream press New York Times Time Magazine etc spoon fed by government officials finds the stories of victims of Soviet oppression to be worth heavy and sustained coverage But when a US client state Guatemala El Salvador friendly to American business brutalizes and terrorizes and murders its civilian population the mainstream media look the other way or when they do pay attention they water down their coverage banish it to a brief on the back page or simply report verifiably false information Not exactly the work of a free and independent pressThe Vietnam War is another case example Contrary to the popularly held notion that the mass media turned the public against the war the media actually favored the war from its inception failing to raise even the most fundamental uestions of morality in the beginning and then as the war escalated publishing the outright lies of the Nixon Administration If you read the media then and perhaps even today you d think America was righteously defending South Vietnam from the communists in North Vietnam Utterly false and the authors meticulously lay out the facts to prove itEven the most exhaustive of retrospective media documentaries about the Vietnam War stay true to the propaganda model calling the war a tragic error despite all of the evidence of criminal aggression by the US The authors write Our point is not that the retrospectives fail to draw what seem to us as to much of the population the obvious conclusions the significant and instructive point is that principled objection to the war as fundamentally wrong and immoral or as outright criminal aggression a war crime is inexpressible It is not part of the spectrum of discussion The background for such a principled critiue cannot be developed in the media and the conclusions cannot be drawn It is not present even to be refuted Rather the idea is unthinkableManufacturing Consent was published in 1988 and the copy I read was a reprint from 1994 I believe there is an updated expanded version and I kind of wish I had purchased that one instead of looking for the cheapest buy That s because I imagine the latest version delves into the right wing hysteria propagated by the likes of Fox News and because I imagine it also takes on the role of the Internet in fragmenting media and arguably democratizing it by allowing essentially anyone to become a publisherAt least I imagine the latest version does these things Maybe it doesn t So I urge anyone interested in reading this most important work perhaps the best and most incisive dissection of media I have ever read to buy the most current edition And then tell me about itIn any case prepare to have the fog of our propaganda model and its central message that America is just great and with the exception of a few minor tactical errors is always on the side of freedom and democracy lifted from your brain While Chomsky and Herman offer hope in the form of nonprofit and public TV and radio programs and the dissident press they are under no illusions about the political economy of the mass media In sum they write 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 significant overt coercion This propaganda system has become even efficient in recent decades with the rise of the national television networks greater mass media concentration right wing pressures on public radio and television and the growth in scope and sophistication of public relations and news management Drowned by Water The Cloud Warrior Saga #25 behavior and performance Their new introduction updates the Propaganda Model and the earlier case studies and it discusses several other applications These

Manufacturing Consent The Political Economy of the Mass Media Free download ´ 102 In this pathbreaking work Edward S Herman and Noam Chomsky show that contrary to the usual image of the news media as cantankerous obstinate and ubiuitous 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 orderBased on a series of case studies including the media’s dichotomous treatment of “worthy” versus “unworthy” victims “legitimizing” and “mea. On the even intellectual edge of the left Noam Chomsky has relentlessly fought against the blindness of American foreign policy and how the press manipulates public opinion to endorse and encourage catastrophes such as the Vietnam War and recently the disaster of the two Ira Wars the War in Afghanistan etc This book explains how the press even when it takes a slightly critical view of events is still at heart manipulating the truth in service of power The most recent example was Drumpf s use of misinformation false news lies and the press blind belief in a solid Clinton victory which allowed him to sweep states that Obama had won in 2008 and 2012 and win the electoral college which naturally he had criticized as useless in 2012 The erudite vision of Chomsky is perhaps hard to stomach for those who wish to guard their blinders but nonetheless he has been right time after timeOn a side note last year s Independant film Captain Fantastic does a beautiful and moving to me anyway homage to Noam Happy reading
