Manufacturing consent: The political economy of the mass media.

 Herman, E.S. & N. Chomsky (1994). Manufacturing consent: The political economy of the mass media. London: Vintage Books.

In 1988 Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky combined their powers and wrote a critical theory on the mass media in the US. In their book they lay out their vision of the propagandist media system in the perceived democracy and free nation US. This book will be the centrepiece of the thesis. A widespread summary of the model and its argumentation will be drawn in the thesis. Eventually the thesis is trying to show what’s left of the propaganda model in de 21st century.
