Chapo Reading Series II: Book One, Manufacturing Consent.(r/ChapoTrapHouse)
Hey, I am an academic who uses Herman and Chomsky’s propaganda model constantly to make sense of the media. I wrote a book about the media coverage of Venezuela and am now finishing a sequel of Manufacturing Consent in collaboration with Noam and some other contributors that updates the model considering the great changes that have happened in the media (social media, smartphones, internet, newspaper and TV decline, fake news etc. It should hopefully be finished for the 30th anniversary of the book’s publication.
I’d echo /u/Prince_Kropotkin ‘s suggestion that the prologue, introduction and first chapter are by far the most important chapters to read. The other chapters are case studies putting the theories and ideas of the first part into practice. However, they are from the 70s and 80s and might not be that relevant to modern readers. Still interesting, though.
