    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    An essential role of corporate journalism is to shore up public confidence in an unjust, crisis-riven financial and economic system. Although plenty of gloom and doom is permitted, especially in the face of obvious crisis, the legitimacy of the system is rarely questioned.
  3. 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.

  9. Canwest latest 'media giant' to exploit news operations
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    Media corporations claim to care about quality journalism, but they've deceived Canadians for decades -- censoring news to protect their profits, pandering to the interests of the corporate world, and neglecting to invest adequately in their news operations. For decades powerful media corporations have decided what news Canadians should read, hear, and see. By reading just about any Canadian daily newspaper it's not hard to see how the values of corporate-owned media are quite different from the values and interests of the majority of Canadians.
  10. The Comic Book Simplicity Of Propaganda
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    The referendum campaign on Scottish independence heightened many people's awareness of the pro-elite bias of the 'mainstream' news media. The grassroots power of social media in exposing and countering this bias was heartening to see. But the issue of independence for Scotland is just one of many where the traditional media consistently favour establishment power.

  14. The Death and Life of Great American Newspapers
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    Journalism is collapsing, and with it comes the most serious threat in our lifetimes to self-government and the rule of law as it has been understood here in the United States.
  15. Democracy's Oxygen 
    How Corporations Control the News

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1997
    Winter shows that far from providing "democracy's oxygen," the news media legitimize a fundamentally undemocratic system. Instead of keeping the public informated, news organizations manufacture public consent for policies which favour the corporate elite.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    What Really Happened to the 1960s is a look at the role the media played in the presentation and interpretation of the struggles of the 1960s. Simultaneously, it is a consideration of the meaning of democracy in a society where the media is owned by corporations and elites who consider democracy antithetic to their hegemony.
  17. 'Free speech' - as long as it doesn't offend anyone 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    On the issue of free speech most of the right and much of the left are in agreement, and so too are many liberals, activists, and human rights apparatchiks. They hold essentially the same position on freedom of expression - they are for it -in principle-, but only so long as it isn't used to express views that they find unacceptable or offensive. What they disagree about is merely who gets to decide what ideas are unacceptable, i.e., who gets to censor who.
  18. Free speech for me - you shut up
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    The right to express offensive views is at the very heart of the principle of free speech.
  19. From the Ashes of Dying Newspapers Will Come Authentic News
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    Every time a daily newspaper of the obsolete model lays off another round of reporters, more of them come to us to study and learn the craft anew from this very different and opposite angle: from below, as opposed to the top down model that encrusted around them and doomed the previous version of their careers. Truth is, there is a direct correlation between the space in the media sphere that gets freed up every time a daily newspaper loses circ or dies and the increased reach that we and others have as we replace them with a better more people-powered model. So don't mourn the American daily newspaper. Anything you liked about it will continue but from a different set of new media. The time will come when one or more of those publications, or a new one yet to come in the US, will turn to the models that work for the daily Por Esto! or El Libertador or others South of the border, kissing their slavish dependence on advertisers goodbye and throwing their lot in, instead, with the larger multitudes of society.

  22. If U.S. Mass Media Were State-Controlled, Would They Look Any Different?
    Snowden Coverage

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    The Edward Snowden leaks have revealed a U.S. corporate media system at war with independent journalism. Many of the same outlets that missed the Wall Street meltdown and cheer-led the Iraq invasion have come to resemble state-controlled media outlets in their near-total identification with the government.
  23. Intellectual Cleansing Part 1
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    Keeping the media safe for big business.
  24. Intellectual Cleansing: Part 2
    Former Guardian and Observer Journalist Jonathan Cook Responds

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    Most ambitious journalists start out on a daily local newspaper owned by one of a handful of large media groups. There one quickly feels all sorts of institutional constraints on one's reporting. As a young journalist, if you know no better, you simply come to accept that journalism is done in a certain kind of way, that certain stories are suitable and others unsuitable.
  25. Intellectual Cleansing: Part 3
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    The tendency to self-deception appears to be greatly increased when we join as part of a group. Groups create a sense of belonging, a "we-feeling", which can provide even greater incentives to reject painful truths.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013

  27. The Koch Whisperers
    Big Brothers Buy in at Big Media

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2011
    A review of documents and tax records for the dizzying, interconnected web of corporate front groups, frequently created, supported and influenced by Charles or David Koch, shows just how dangerous these groups espousing free markets and liberty have become to a free society. The game plan is to devalue the rights of actual citizens by seeking human voices dangling from a corporate marionette string, that might be willing for the right amount of cash incentive to broadcast the Orwellian reverse-speak: liberty means more liberty for corporations (corporate serfdom for real citizens); freedom means corporate freedom to privatize national resources, pollute the environment and fleece the consumer with impunity; free market means the freedom to draw a dark curtain around how the corporations are actually screwing us and stealing our liberty.
  28. Lies The Media Tell us
    Resource Type: Book

    The Political Economy of the Mass Media

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1988
    Contrary to the usual image of the press and cantankerous, obstinate, and ubiquitious in its search for truth, Herman and Chomsky depict how an underlying elite consensus largely structures all facets of the news. They analyze how issues are framed and topics chosen, and the way in which the marketplace and the economics of publishing significantly shape the news.

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2000
    Asks a number of questions, including: How well do the news media filter reality, for what purposes, through what processes and in whose interests? How do newspapers and TV stations choose what news is printed or aired, which letters will be published, or who will be accorded credibility?

  37. Why Canada must limit the influence of corporate media
    Resource Type: Article

  38. Wikileaks Exposes Complicity of the Press
    Documents Show NYT and Washington Post Shilling for US Government on Iran Missile "Threat"

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    A key Wikileaks document which should have resulted in stories calling into question the thrust of the Obama administration's ballistic missile defense policy in Europe based on an alleged Iranian missile threat has instead produced a spate of stories buttressing anti-Iran hysteria.
  39. Wikileaks - The Smear and the Denial
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    The Internet has revealed a chasm separating the corporate media from readers and viewers. Previously, the divide was hidden by the simple fact that journalists monopolised the means of mass communication. Dissent was restricted to a few lonely lines on the letter’s page, if that.
