Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Herman and Chomsky's 'The Propaganda Model', outlined in Manufacturing Consent, describes how they believed the print and broadcast mass media were manipulating information flow into the US public sphere. This detailed, article length ebook begins with a detailed description of the model, and then examines how computer mediated communication, like the Internet, circumvents the information filters and loosens the stranglehold of the mass media.
