3. Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media
Author: by Edward S. Herman
Published at: Pantheon; Reprint edition (January 15, 2002)
In this pathbreaking work, Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky show that, contrary to the usual image of the news media as cantankerous, obstinate, and ubiquitous in their search for truth and defense of justice, in their actual practice they defend the economic, social, and political agendas of the privileged groups that dominate domestic society, the state, and the global order.
Based on a series of case studiesincluding the media’s dichotomous treatment of worthy versus unworthy victims, legitimizing and meaningless Third World elections, and devastating critiques of media coverage of the U.S. Wars against IndochinaHerman and Chomsky draw on decades of criticism and research to propose a Propaganda Model to explain the media’s behavior and performance.
Their new introduction updates the Propaganda Model and the earlier case studies, and it discusses several other applications. These include the manner in which the media covered the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement and subsequent Mexican financial meltdown of 1994-1995, the media’s handling of the protests against the World Trade Organization, World Bank, and International Monetary Fund in 1999 and 2000, and the media’s treatment of the chemical industry and its regulation.
4. Cancel Culture: The Latest Attack on Free Speech and Due Process
Author: by Alan Dershowitz
Published at: Hot Books (November 17, 2020)
In Cancel Culture, Alan DershowitzNew York Times bestselling author and one of America’s most respected legal scholarsmakes an argument for free speech, due process, and restraint against the often overeager impulse to completely cancel individuals and institutions at the ever-changing whims of social media-driven crowds.
Alan Dershowitz has been called one of the most prominent and consistent defenders of civil liberties in America by Politico and the nation’s most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights by Newsweek.
Yet he has come under intense criticism for his steadfast and consistent championing of those same principles, and his famed shoeontheotherfoot test, to those who have been cancelled for any number of faults, both real and imagined. Cancel Culture is a defense of due process, free speech, and even-handedness in the application of judgment.
It makes the case for restraint and care in decisions about whom and what to cancel, boycott, deplatform, and bar from public life, and offers recommendations for when, why, and to what degree these steps may be appropriate, as long as objective, fair-minded criteria can be determined and met.

Published at: Penguin Books; Anniversary edition (December 27, 2005)

CNNOriginally published in 1985, Neil Postman’s groundbreaking polemic about the corrosive effects of television on our politics and public discourse has been hailed as a twenty-first-century book published in the twentieth century. Now, with television joined by more sophisticated electronic mediafrom the Internet to cell phones to DVDsit has taken on even greater significance.

A brilliant, powerful, and important book. This is an indictment that Postman has laid down and, so far as I can see, an irrefutable one. Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World

12. The Case for Trump
Author: by Victor Davis Hanson
Published at: Basic Books; Revised edition (March 17, 2020)
This New York Times bestselling Trump biography from a major American intellectual explains how a renegade businessman became one of the most successful – and necessary – presidents of all time. In The Case for Trump, award-winning historian and political commentator Victor Davis Hanson explains how a celebrity businessman with no political or military experience triumphed over sixteen well-qualified Republican rivals, a Democrat with a quarter-billion-dollar war chest, and a hostile media and Washington establishment to become president of the United States – and an extremely successful president.
Trump alone saw a political opportunity in defending the working people of America’s interior whom the coastal elite of both parties had come to scorn, Hanson argues. And Trump alone had the instincts and energy to pursue this opening to victory, dismantle a corrupt old order, and bring long-overdue policy changes at home and abroad.
We could not survive a series of presidencies as volatile as Trump’s. But after decades of drift, America needs the outsider Trump to do what normal politicians would not and could not do.
