The paper cites that Chomsky accuses journalists of manipulating the truth in an effort to promote the interests of the media owners and conglomerates.

From the Paper:

"Noam Chomsky and Edward Herman designed the "propaganda model" in an effort to explain the role of the mass media and its' corruption. The authors suggest that the media, including newspapers, radio, and television, is controlled by the elite particularly in democratic societies. Many people assume that media control is more typical in dictatorship societies, however Chomsky and Herman believe otherwise. They claim that the purpose of the media is to provide the public with information and entertainment. The authors also suggest that the media influences society's norms, values, codes of behavior, and beliefs."
