    Select Question Language :


    Major media outlets present the survivors of wars and atrocities as nameless, far-flung crowds — if they are presented at all. For most mainstream outlets, these are unworthy victims, a term popularized in 1988’s Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy Of The Mass Media by Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky. Through a systemic analysis of the “propaganda model,” Herman and Chomsky outline how, mostly through advertising control, the agenda of American elites maintain their grip on the public’s consciousness. Agreeable coverage receives access to the wealthiest revenue streams, and the broadest audience. In terms of war, this creates worthy victims: mostly Americans and Westerners, whose stories attract far more revenue and, therefore, attention. Unworthy victims — families killed in drone strikes, or young men auctioned off in Libyan slave markets — earn less profitable and less in-depth characterization. Their deaths are distant facts, virtually irrelevant to the big picture.

    What is the most logical and critical inference that can be drawn from the passage?

    Options :-

    1. Corporatization of media has led to biased news coverage

    2. Media has lost its place as the 4th pillar of democracy

    3. Anti-establishment views are now gaining prominence in media

    4. Media shows news that the audience demands
