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.
 
Notes:
 
This is a rebroadcast of the Project Censored Show of February 19, 2018.
 
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. His print article on updating the Herman/Chomsky propaganda model

Project Censored - 07.17.18

9/11 activists Jenna Orkin and Jon Gold are Mickey's guests for the hour. Rather than considering who the perpetrators might've been,
the guests discuss the public health disaster that followed the attacks, when thousands of emergency workers and area residents
became ill from the toxins spread by the fires and collapse of the World Trade Center. Jon Gold also calls out some of the lies
told by politicians (both federal and local) about 9/11, as well as the failures of the 9/11 Commission.

Notes:

Jenna Orkin has written four books, the most recent being "Ground Zero Wars." She focuses on the public health impacts
of the 9/11 disaster. At the time of the attacks, her son attended high school four blocks from the WTC.

Jon Gold has been investigating 9/11 for over ten years. His latest work is "We Were Lied To About 9/11," a digital collection
of transcripts from interviews with journalists, whistleblowers, peace activists, relatives of victims, and others who've worked
to uncover the story.
