Manufacturing Consent with Rob Williams
In 1988 Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky published their influential work, “Manufacturing Consent.” One of the book’s features was the introduction of the ‘propaganda model,’ the Herman/Chomsky analysis of how powerful institutions shape news reporting to serve their interests. In this Project Censored Show, media scholar Rob Williams suggests how the propaganda model can be adapted and updated to address modern online media.
Rob Williams teaches at the University of Vermont, and also works with the Action Coalition for Media Education and the Global Critical Media Literacy Project.
