Want to help shape the future of the border region?

What are your thoughts on Chomsky's 5 Filters of the Mass Media Machine?

This model seeks to explain media behavior by examining the institutional pressures that constrain and influence news content within a profit-driven system. In contrast to liberal theories that argue that journalism is adversarial to established power, the propaganda model predicts that corporate-owned news media will consistently produce news content that serves the interests of established power.

The ...5th filter is an external enemy or threat. This filter mobilizes the population against a common enemy (terrorism, immigrants, energy insecurity, Iran…) while demonizing opponents of state policy as insufficiently patriotic or in league with the enemy.

"Going through the accelerator provided the structure, framework, and ability to define what our social enterprise was going to look like. Of course it's iterative and we continue to make changes; the lab was a catalyst to get started. So many times projects just don't take off. When you bring people together, keep throwing ideas together, test them, and keep iterating, you can accomplish so much. The time with mentors and fellow entrepreneurs was also very beneficial. Having... people poke holes and ask questions and provide insight was truly beneficial."
-Tania Azar (https://www.linkedin.com/in/taniamazar/), Director of College Apps Academy at Reality Changers(https://realitychangers.org/) and participant of our last 5-day accelerator, is responsible for driving the growth of a revenue-generating program to scale their efforts helping youth from disadvantaged backgrounds graduate college. Since the accelerator, they have raised $50,000 to support additional program enhancements. Currently, they are building out their technical platform and will begin beta testing in June.
