The Pentagon's Military Analyst Program
Valeri, Andy
Policy Futures in Education, v12 n4 p572-582 2014
This article provides an investigatory overview of the Pentagon's military analyst program, what it is, how it was implemented, and how it constitutes a form of propaganda. A technical analysis of the program is applied using the theoretical framework of the propaganda model first developed by Noam Chomsky and Edward S. Herman. Definitions and parameters of what constitutes propaganda as outlined by Chomsky and Herman, particularly through their analysis of 'filtering' mass media news through "sourcing", are drawn on in order to determine how various aspects of the program can be qualified as propaganda.
