SocietyMassCom: The Chomskyan Critique Continued (W7-P3) Fa17

One of Chomsky’s books that deals critically with media is Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media.  This is also a title of a documentary and Chomsky and his idea.

Let's take a look at part of the doc.

In the doc, what is meant by "manufacturing consent"?  Propaganda model?

Now, let's focus specifically on Herman & Chomsky's 5 filters of the propaganda model.

(The previous video comes from Al Jazeera English. If you are interested, you might check out Al Jazeera English)

Also, if you are interested, you might explore the link between the percentages of people in society that Chomsky mentions in the doc and the idea of percentages mentioned in the Brand Nubian song "Meaning of the 5%" .

Or try this YouTube video:

See the lyrics.
