Politics of Misinformation, The

by Edelman, Murray

Short description

The Politics of Misinformation is a critical examination of how and why the public has confidence in political progress and innovation even though most change is superficial. Concentrations of social and economic power produce illusions that create the impression of beneficial social change while erasing the possibility of such change. Language, bureaucratic authority, law, political parties, science, and other social institutions help to produce images that mislead both non-elite and elite, creating the appearance of rational democracy while at the same time obscuring structural inequality, discouraging critical evaluation of political policy, and thwarting involvement in democratic politics. Murray Edelman was emeritus professor of political science at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and one of the most widely read scholars of political communication in the world. He was the author of numerous books, including The Symbolic Uses of Politics and Constructing the Political Spectacle.
