Jeffery Klaehn

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    This article provides an overview of the Propaganda Model and rehearses central theoretical
    considerations concerning the model’s overall understanding of media behaviour. The article then advances a contemporary state-of-the-art discourse on the methodological techniques that may be utilized in applying the model, highlights potentially complementary approaches to the critical study of mass media behaviour and explores criticisms of the model.
