Titel: Newspeak in the 21st century
Sub titel: Media lens

Media Lens is a media monitoring outfit that takes journalists and broadcasters to task for misrepresentation, omissions, and otherwise colouring the truth. They are believers in Chomsky's Propaganda Model of the media, that the corporate media, as profit-driven institutions, tend to serve and further the agendas of the interests of dominant, elite groups in the society - and Media Lens shows how this plays out in practice through their dialogues with individuals from (especially) the BBC, the Guardian and the Independent , which they reproduce with commentary in their regular 'media alerts', which are sent out by email to their subscriber list and also posted on their web site.
