Walter Lippmann (September 23, 1889 – December 14, 1974 [ 1 ] ) was an American public intellectual , writer , reporter , and political commentator famous for being among the first to introduce the concept of Cold War ; he coined the term stereotype in the modern psychological meaning as well. Lippmann was twice awarded (1958 and 1962) a Pulitzer Prize for his syndicated newspaper column , "Today and Tomorrow". [ edit ] Early life Walter Lippmann was born on September 23, 1889, in New York City, to Jacob and Daisy Baum Lippmann; his upper-middle class German Jewish family took annual holidays in Europe. At age 17, he entered Harvard University where he studied under George Santayana , William James , and Graham Wallas , concentrating upon philosophy and languages (he spoke German and French ), and earned his degree in three years, graduating as a member of the Phi Beta Kappa society.

Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media (1988), by Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky , is an analysis of the news media , arguing that 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 overt coercion". [ 1 ] The title derives from the phrase "the manufacture of consent" that essayist–editor Walter Lippmann (1889–1974) employed in the book Public Opinion (1922). [ 2 ] Chomsky has said that Australian social psychologist Alex Carey , to whom the book was dedicated, was in large part the impetus of his and Herman's work. [ 3 ] The book introduced the propaganda model of the media. A film, Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media , was later released based on the book. [ edit ] Government and news media
Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media (1992) is a documentary film that explores the political life and ideas of Noam Chomsky , a linguist , intellectual , and political activist . Created by two Canadian filmmakers, Mark Achbar and Peter Wintonick , it expands on the ideas of Chomsky's earlier book, Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media , which he co-wrote with Edward S. Herman . The film presents and illustrates Chomsky's and Herman's thesis that corporate media , as profit-driven institutions, tend to serve and further the agendas of the interests of dominant, elite groups in the society. A centerpiece of the film is a long examination of the history of The New York Times ' coverage of the Indonesian occupation of East Timor , which Chomsky says exemplifies the media's unwillingness to criticize an ally of the elite.

A Thesis by Charles Jerome Schoch Bachelor of Arts, University of Washington, 2008
The Occupy movement occupied two parallel, rarely intersecting universes in the corporate media. In one, described frequently in the Toronto Star , occasionally in the Vancouver Sun and Globe and Mail and only once in the National Post , Occupy is a worldwide movement created in response to the growing gap between the one percent at the top of the income-and-asset pyramid and the 99 percent below. In the Occupy universe largely described by the other papers, Occupy is little more than a rag-tag bunch of ne’er-do-wells with vague—but nevertheless invalid—goals who need to get a job. Such a characterization may not be surprising given that almost all newspapers are owned by card-carrying members of the one percent .
Project Censored is a non-profit , media criticism and investigative journalism project within the Sonoma State University Foundation. It is managed through the School of Social Sciences at the university. According to the Project Censored official website, the organization describes itself as a media research group that "tracks the news published in independent journals and newsletters. From these, Project Censored compiles an annual list of 25 news stories of social significance that have been overlooked, under-reported or self-censored by the country's major national news media."

I’m looking for reader input on whether and when New York Times news reporters should challenge “facts” that are asserted by newsmakers they write about. One example mentioned recently by a reader: As cited in an Adam Liptak article on the Supreme Court, a court spokeswoman said Clarence Thomas had “misunderstood” a financial disclosure form when he failed to report his wife’s earnings from the Heritage Foundation. The reader thought it not likely that Mr. Thomas “misunderstood,” and instead that he simply chose not to report the information. Another example: on the campaign trail, Mitt Romney often says President Obama has made speeches “apologizing for America,” a phrase to which Paul Krugman objected in a December 23 column arguing that politics has advanced to the “post-truth” stage.
'Should the Times be a Truth Vigilante?' asked Arthur Brisbane. 'Yes,' came the resounding reply. Photograph: Lucas Jackson/Reuters Thursday, Arthur Brisbane, the public editor of the New York Times, went to his readers with a question :
Jan. 12 Somewhere along the way, telling truth from falsehood was surpassed by other priorities to which the press felt a stronger duty. Arthur Brisbane, public editor of the New York Times, was unaware of this history when he asked users of the Times whether reporters should call out false statements.
