    Abstract

    Filtering the News begins with a critical review and assessment of the propaganda model, then applies it to a wide range of ongoing news events including: Bush's war propaganda machine and the American mainstream media; Israeli propaganda; the question of intellectual responsibility; Dan Rather and the problem of patriotism; news coverage of near- genocide; and American journalism post 9/11. In the final chapters, Herman and Chomsky's model is revisited, and several common criticisms of the model are reflected upon.
