  1. Agreement on terms
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2007
    I have come to accept that western journalists cannot accurately, let alone objectively, represent the Middle East and the Arab world. The problem is not that journalists do not always adhere to their own professional codes and methods, though that does happen. It is that even if correspondents strictly obey all the rules, they still present a fundamentally biased and skewed picture of the Middle East.
  2. America's last taboo
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2002
    The unspoken premise of the mainstream press is that no Palestinian or Arab position on Israeli police terror, settler-colonialism, or military occupation is worth hearing from.
  3. Assange and Posada in the Propaganda System
    Mixed Media

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2011
    Posada's case is a dramatic illustration of the fraudulence of the so-called "War on Terror" and highlights the U.S. refusal to abide by the rule of law. Assange's case shows well the U.S. establishment's fear of the free-flow of information that might interfere with foreign policy and reveal that there are many more Posadas whose service to the empire might be disclosed. And the media's cooperation in this protection of Posada and pursuit of Assange is clear. \

  5. Bias in the Media: the Result of Corporate Ownership
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    There may still be, perhaps in the quiet countryside somewhere, people who believe that news programs present news. It is unlikely that this is true; rather, those who rely on the corporate-owned press for information probably enjoy finding sources that support what they want to hear. And, if they are unsure of just what it is that they want to hear, their 'trusted' source will tell them.
  6. Blindspots in The News
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1995
    The filters that determine what gets into the "news" and what doesn't.
  7. Business journalists go on the attack; demonize Atlantic seasonal workers
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    National business journalists and columnists have bought into Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s demeaning view that folks in the Atlantic region are backward and have a defeatist attitude. Framed in disrespectful language, they’re promoting untested economic ideas that, if adopted, would seriously damage the economy – and the people – of the region.
  8. Canadian group not dealing with major free expression issue
    Celebrating World Press Freedom Day

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    We need to address how corporate-owned mainstream news organizations restrict the freedom of journalists and prevent the public from having access to a wide variety of important news and opinion articles. This lack of balanced information affects everything from people having the information they need to decide how to vote to all of us better understanding how power is exercised in our communities. The censorship consists of banning some topics and discussions and filtering out stories and ideas that do not fit the current mainstream media agenda.

    Home Truths about Foreign News

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1989
    This book is about HACKS - journalists, the men and women who fly into famines and wars and in a few days churn out stories telling the world what has been going on. It shows how HACKS work and the pressures that they face through some of the big news stories and hidden wars of the past decade. It's also about "newspeak" and double talk to square what is actually happening to the complacencies of news organisations at home. Finally, it's about how one HACK thinks; how he has picked his way through the political minefield of journalism and survived with only the loss of a few stories chopped and a few others consigned to the waste bin.
  15. How Truth Slips Down The Memory Hole
    Resource Type: Article

    John Pilger, applies to current events Orwell's description in '1984' of how the Ministry of Truth consigned embarrassing truth to a memory hole.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    After the US airstrikes that hit an MSF (Medecins Sans Frontières) hospital, many news outlets have depicted the event in a way that evades any American responsibility.
  21. Media Think
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2000
    Increasingly the news media are owned by a small group of very large corporations with extensive interests outside the industry, run by the corporate elite.Winter argues that instead of offering diverse perspectives on events and issues, the media portray an increasingly dogmatic and orthodox corporate picture of the world around us. The consistency with which they do this has its consequent, intended effect on public opinion and policy formation.
  22. Medialens
    Resource Type: Website
    Correcting for the distorted vision of the corporate media.
    MediaLens is a response based on our conviction that mainstream newspapers and broadcasters provide a profoundly distorted picture of our world. We are convinced that the increasingly centralised, corporate nature of the media means that it acts as a de facto propaganda system for corporate and other establishment interests. The costs incurred as a result of this propaganda, in terms of human suffering and environmental degradation, are incalculable.
    In seeking to understand the basis and operation of this systematic distortion, we flatly reject all conspiracy theories and point instead to the inevitably corrupting effects of free market forces operating on and through media corporations seeking profit in a society dominated by corporate power.

  28. Other Voices: The Connexions Newsletter - July 2, 2016
    Brexit, Jeremy Corbyn, and Contempt for Democracy

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    Brexit, the British vote to leave the European Union, has thrown the political elites into turmoil and confusion. The referendum was supposed to be a safe political manoeuvre, a way to produce an appearance of democratic legitimacy for the profoundly undemocratic structures of the EU. The gambit turned out to be a spectacular miscalculation, as millions of people turned out to express their opposition to a state of affairs that is leaving the majority worse off while enriching a small minority. This issue of Other Voices looks at the Brexit referendum, elite loathing for democracy, and the related attempt to get rid of Labour's leftwing leader, Jeremy Corbyn.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    In Al Jazeera’s early days in the mid and late 1990s, the channel took on taboo subjects and proudly challenged the status quo. In recent months, however, Al Jazeera has begun to change course. It has deviated from its journalistic responsibilities in Libya, and is now completely losing the plot with Syria. The channel is in urgent need to revisit its own code of ethics.
