    Herman and Chomsky’s Propaganda Model (PM) has emphasized how the various ‘filters’ can lead to news reports misrepresenting the vested political and economic interests that underpin US foreign policy.

    This paper attempts to explore the role of the internet in the processes of organization and mobilization of the ‘movement for alternative globalization’, which is often characterized as an ‘internet-based movement’. It reports the findings of a survey undertaken in the Paris 2003 European Social Forum (ESF), which asked 257 respondents about the contexts that mobilized them to participate in the ESF (political/voluntary organizations, friends/relatives, workplace/university, news media), as ...
