Abstract: Taking the studies of Herbert Schiller as a basis, we shall carry out a reinterpretation of the myths that uphold the Market Economy, within which the media shall act as instruments that have control over public opinion. The multinationals of the sector, with multiple interests, thus forget their role of public function and instead join together with the political/economic elite which aims at the survival of inalterability. In order to do so, the doses of manipulation are to be administered on a daily basis by means of multiple mechanisms and shall reach their highest levels at moments of crisis. This is what was to happen at the different phases of the invasion in Iraq in 1991, 1998 and 2003, just as can be seen in the case of American journalism.
