The Propaganda Model and the Internet: Smashing the Gateway

Herman and Chomsky's 'The Propaganda Model' describes how they believed the print and broadcast mass media were manipulating information flow into the US public sphere. This ebook begins with a detailed description of the model. It then examines how computer mediated communication, like the Internet, circumvents the information filters and loosens the stranglehold of the mass media.

About Hercules Bantas

Dr Hercules Bantas has been teaching and reading the human sciences for the better part of a decade. It is his opinion that he is too often immersed in some weighty tome or other, the authors of which always use one thousand words where one hundred words would suffice. It was while juggling no less than three weighty tomes by the same author and trying to understand what the fellow was trying to say that the idea of The Reluctant Geek Guides was born. He is well aware that publishing clearly written and unambiguous guides to important ideas in the human sciences is frowned upon in some circles, but he's going to do it anyway. Despite his well documented grumpiness, Hercules claims to like people and can be contacted by email at reluctantgeek[at]iinet.net.au.
