ymbiotic relationship with powerful sources of information by economic necessity and reciprocity of interest” (Herman & Chomsky, 1998). Yet the high demands of the news industry particularly in the areas of public relations journalism ‘churnalism’ can occur, where it becomes more convenient to vaguely change the wording of a previous PR release’s in todays society. Flak: When the media, journalists, whistle blowers, sources stray away from the consensus. When the story us inconvenient for the powers begin to discredit sources, trashing sources and discrediting conversation. Flak acts as means of disciplining the media and can take many forms including letters, emails, phone calls and protests. In order to avoid the potential outcry from viewers and corporations the media tend to avoid watered down stories that have the potential to create flak. Today’s relevance Through the introduction of social media platform, its has become increasingly easier for members of society to voice an opinion. Social media sites including Facebook, twitter, Instagram and review websites have contributed to a new phenomenon of a global audience. Politian’s such as Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump have adopted social media sites as a way of communicating to the mass audience, particularly during the 2016 presidential election. Now president Donald Trump continues to use predominately twitter to address his stance on current policies and current affairs to over 30 million followers.

Consent is being constantly manufactured through the necessity of the media finding ways to marginalize and control the public in a democratic society as ‘they who have put out the people eyes reproach them of their blindness” (Milto, 1642). The agenda setting in the national press, shape and control the information and sources that support a conservative standpoint to embody an anti-communist ideology. The propaganda model’s ‘free market’ depicts a closed system of selective screening to preserve the interests of the established power. Herman and Chomsky’s ‘Manufacturing Consent’ successfully explains the relevance of the five filters to the United States mass media industry at the time the theory was introduced. During the 20th century the upsurge of propaganda surrounding the impact of WWI and WWII in part encompassed the political and cultural climate of a highly indoctrinated society where elementary truths were easily manipulated to sway public opinion. Towards the end of the industrial revolution, particular communication technology such as print, radio and television became efficient at mass producing and broadcasting for public consumption. The ideology of the industrial revolution emanated through the ‘manufacturing’ aspects of the mass media. Similar to assembly lines in the car manufacturing process, a single hierarchical structure would ensure that control of the broadcasting content would stem outwards from established elites who disseminate information. The five filters of the propaganda model to a substantial extent are not applicable to society today. A free press that speaks truthfully to the powerless is a necessary pre-condition for a democratic society. The means by which information is disseminated to the voting public in a capitalist system presents a fundamental barrier to popular democracy. At the time the propaganda theory was introduced the public mind was ultimately a commodity for economic elites to abuse.
