Jeffery Klaehn, PhD, teaches at Wilfrid Laurier University, Kitchener, Ontario. He is the editor of Filtering the News: Essays on Herman and Chomsky's Propaganda Model, of Bound By Power: Intended Consequences and of Inside the World of Comic Books (all Black Rose books titles).
"Jeffery Klaehn is to be congratulated for bringing together this significant collection of essays by leading scholars in the field of media and communication studies which the general public, students and scholars alike will find invaluable." - Bob Franklin, Journalism Studies, Cardiff University "By itself, the chapter on the pretentious Dan Rather is worth twice the price of the book. Extremely timely." - Barrie Zwicker, host of The Great Conspiracy "We all know we cannot believe anything in the mainstream press. Filtering the News tells us, in disturbing detail, just how true this is and describes the extraordinary lengths to which the media will go in order to reinforce the dominant ideology of the Washington Consensus. Needed: more honest analysis like the essays in this provocative book." - Maude Barlow, Council of Canadians
