THE MYTH OF THE LIBERAL MEDIA


Video By: ChallengingMedia | October 4, 2006

(Quote) from Media Education Foundation “If you think U.S. news has a liberal bias, this assumption-shattering film from Noam Chomsky, Edward Herman, and Justin Lewis will have you thinking again. Making the common-sense case that mainstream news media are more committed to their bottom-line interests as large corporations than to left-wing advocacy, they dissect how news content gets shaped within a narrow, and ultimately conservative, institutional frame that marginalizes the progressive perspectives of a broad cross-section of the American public. The film, made before the rise of Fox News, has become only more relevant with time.”

"If you want to understand the way a system works, you look at its institutional structure. How it is organized, how it is controlled, how it is funded."
- Noam Chomsky

"The Mainstream media really represent elite interests, and what the propaganda model tries to do is stipulate a set of institutional variables, reflecting this elite power, that very powerfully influence the media."
- Edward Herman



Liberty-Pac: Personally I take it one step further than Chomsky. I believe -all- the for profit networks, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, ETC.... (to varying degrees) slant their version of the story or truth, depending on the agenda being peddled. Public broadcasting isn't much better.  I've been un-plugged from the MSM or main stream media since 1997 and have no desire to tune in again.
