Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media. Government and news media[edit] Editorial distortion is aggravated by the news media’s dependence upon private and governmental news sources.

Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media

If a given newspaper, television station, magazine, etc., incurs governmental disfavor, it is subtly excluded from access to information. Consequently, it loses readers or viewers, and ultimately, advertisers. To minimize such financial danger, news media businesses editorially distort their reporting to favor government and corporate policies in order to stay in business.

Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the 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.

Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media

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. Companion book[edit] Mark Achbar edited a companion book of the same name. See also[edit] External links[edit] Noam Chomsky: Manufacturing Consent 1 of 9.

Wag the Dog. The film was released just prior to the Lewinsky scandal and the subsequent bombing of the Al-Shifa pharmaceutical factory in Sudan by the Clinton Administration.[3] Plot[edit] The plan's setbacks, including an error in seizing a criminally insane Army prison convict (Harrelson) to be a "hero" who was "shot down behind enemy lines," do not disturb Motss, who repeatedly claims "this is nothing" while comparing the situation to past movie-making catastrophes he averted.

Wag the Dog

In the end, with the president re-elected, everything seems fine until Motss finds out that the media are crediting the president's win to a tired campaign slogan of "Don't change horses in mid-stream" rather than Motss's hard work. Motss announces that he only did this for "the credit" and will call the media to "set them straight," despite Brean's warning that he is "playing with his life. " Motss refuses to back down, so Brean reluctantly has him killed and makes it look as if he had a heart attack.

Nov.10 “American journalism is dumber than most journalists, who often share my sense of absurdity about these practices.

A major reason we have a practice less intelligent than its practitioners is the prestige that the View from Nowhere still claims…” After dismissing Mr. Glenn Greenwald: Arthur Brisbane and selective stenography. The New York Times‘ Public Editor Arthur Brisbane unwittingly sparked an intense and likely enduring controversy yesterday when he pondered — as though it were some agonizing, complex dilemma — whether news reporters “should challenge ‘facts’ that are asserted by newsmakers they write about.” That’s basically the equivalent of pondering in a medical journal whether doctors should treat diseases, or asking in a law review article whether lawyers should defend the legal interests of their clients, etc.: reporting facts that conflict with public claims (what Brisbane tellingly demeaned as being “truth vigilantes”) is one of the defining functions of journalism, at least in theory.

Subsequent attempts to explain what he meant, along with a response from the NYT‘s Executive Editor, Jill Abramson, will only add fuel to the fire.

Moderne tijd dringt moeizaam door tot mediaredacties. Het zijn net mensen. De natuurfilm lijkt definitief doorgebroken. Sinds een aantal weken zendt de EO de Britse serie Frozen Planet uit om half negen 's avonds, en de film One Life draait in zowel filmhuizen als megabioscopen. Bij elkaar is dat in maar liefst 34 zalen. Entertainment voor de massa. Maar het natuurschoon is gemanipuleerd en commentatoren doen telkens politieke uitspraken.

De natuurfilm is een nieuwe vorm van propaganda. National Geographic was een van de eerste kanalen die natuurdocumentaires uitzond. Daarnaast bestond de educatieve natuurtelevisie, bijvoorbeeld die waarin de olijke Australiër Steve Irwin van elk dodelijk dier uitlegde hoe gevaarlijk het was, om dat vervolgens op zichzelf te testen.

Frozen Planet en One Life zijn totaal anders. Murdoch and power: why Leveson is looking in the wrong place. Jeremy Hunt visited News Corp in US as Murdochs considered BSkyB bid.

In June 2005, Fleet Street told its readers about a gang of feral child bullies who had attempted to murder a five-year-old boy by hanging him from a tree; the boy had managed to free himself.
