While the individual elements of the propaganda system (or filters)
identified by the Propaganda Model (PM) – ownership, advertising,
sources, flak and anti-communism – have previously been the focus of
much scholarly attention, their systematisation in a model, empirical
corroboration and historicisation have made the PM a useful tool for
media analysis across cultural and geographical boundaries. Despite the
wealth of scholarly research Herman and Chomsky’s work has set into
motion over the past decades, the PM has been subjected to
marginalisation, poorly informed critiques and misrepresentations.
Interestingly, while the PM enables researchers to form discerning
predictions as regards corporate media performance, Herman and Chomsky
had further predicted that the PM itself would meet with such
marginalisation and contempt. In current theoretical and empirical
studies of mass media performance, uses of the PM continue, nonetheless,
to yield important insights into the workings of political and economic
power in society, due in large measure to the model’s considerable
explanatory power.
