“Concentrate on the victims of enemy powers and forget about the victims of friends.”
Edward S. Herman, Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media

“The steady advance, and cultural power, of marketing and advertising has caused “the displacement of a political public sphere by a depoliticized consumer culture.”21”
Edward S. Herman, Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media

“There is little reason to believe that they would not like to understand why they are working harder with stagnant or declining incomes, have inadequate medical care at high costs, and what is being done in their name all over the world. If they are not getting much information on these topics, the propaganda model can explain why: the sovereigns who control the media choose not to offer such material.”
Edward S. Herman, Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media
