Filtering the News


Herman and Chomsky's 'propaganda model' argues that there are five classes of 'filters' in society that determine what is news; in other words, what gets printed in newspapers or broadcast by radio and television. They are: "ownership" (is the story in line with the media owner's interests); "advertising" (is the story in line with the advertiser's interests); "sourcing" (does the story come from government departments and/or other powerful players); "flack" (if the story is aired, can the subjects of it pose a real threat, like the government, big advertisers and other organized groups); and "ideology" (does the story justify political maneuvering and defend corporate interests around the world). Whether a news item is going to be used by the media or not is going to depend on if it can pass through these filters.

"Filtering the News" begins with a critical review and assessment of the propaganda model, then applies Herman and Chomsky's model to a range of ongoing news events including Bush's war propaganda machine and the American mainstream media; Israeli propaganda; El Salvador and the question of intellectual responsibility; news coverage of near-genocide in occupied East Timor; the media on the environment; and Dan Rather and the problem with patriotism and American journalism, post-9/11. In the final chapters, Herman and Chomsky's propaganda model is revisited, and several common criticisms of the model are reflected upon and scrutinized.

Contributors include: Valerie Scatamburlo-D'Annibale, Bob Everton, Peter Eglin, Robert Jensen, Jeffery Klaehn, James Winter and Paul Boin.

Jeffery Klaehn teaches sociology at the University of Guelph. Apart from being published in a range of scholarly journals, including "Portuguese Studies Review," "Cultural Dynamics," "Journalism Studies," and "The Canadian Review of Sociology and Anthropology," he is the editor of "Studies in Popular Culture: Comic Books and Comic Book Culture."
