Mass Media, Culture, and The Left

Michael Albert


Abstract: What is the relation of mass media and culture? Beyond the obvious narrowing of thought and debate by mainstream reporting and academics, as documented by folks like Chomsky, Herman, and others, this article discusses the origins of cultural preferences, market and media impact on cultural preferences, leftist attitudes to non-leftistist's cultural preferences, some aspects of economic and media vision and program, and "walking  butterflies."
