"Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky demolish one of the central tenets of our political culture, the idea of the "liberal media." Instead, utilizing a systematic model based on massive empirical research, they reveal the manner in which the news media are so subordinated to corporate and conservative interests that their function can only be described as that of 'elite propaganda.' !" + "OUTFOXED ...

a) 'The Myth of the Liberal Media' : http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article6435.htm ;

"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

& ...

b) "OUTFOXED" : http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6737097743434902428 . A film which examines how media empires, led by Rupert Murdoch's Fox News, have been running a "race to the bottom" in television news. This film provides an in-depth look at Fox News and the dangers of ever-enlarging corporations taking control of the public's right to know.

Thanx 'GF' but I do not claim any credit whatsoever.

Assuming and presuming that you don't already know about it, my seasonal gift to you (and to all !!) is : http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/ and if you scroll down Dec.18th items (on the present front page), you'll see where I'm coming from ;-)

The best wishes of the season to you.

Good one, shadz. The corporate media are marginalizing themselves, and the puppet strings are getting more and more apparent.

Thanx, 'Mr. George C. Zeitgeist' ;-)

I saw the very first one and have seen "Addendum" but I haven't seen (neither was I even aware of !) "Moving Forward". I hope that we can all 'move forward' and that The Spirit of The Age, moves towards Peace, Prosperity and 'Potential' for all ...

Re. "Money Masters" : http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-515319560256183936 = An Explanation of Banks ; Banking ; The Fed. and "How Bankers came to control America" !

Re. "The Secret of Oz" : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXndAyTr5kc , a continuation of the themes the film above and an insight "behind the curtain" of 'The Wizard of Oz' !!

The two films above constitute a de facto Course in The Economic History of The U$A, probably better than most taught in US colleges and universities !!!

not sure i agree completely - they do present a good history but i am pretty sure they are hard money types - ron paul libertarians - which is hard to square with real economic history. also they struck me a jewish banker conspiracy types - i am not a big fan of that line or thinking - "debt the first 5000 yrs" or "secrets of the temple" give one a better idea of what is happening in the world
