I'm looking for books and authors which relate to the times we are going through in terms of disinformation, "fake news", cultures based on war and violence and the "call of duty", false flag operations such us the Maine, the Gulf of Tonkin or Nayirah (or perhaps even 9/11), the prosecution of socialism and communism in the USA or how Hollywood always sells to the world this view of the "American hero" who fights in the name of freedom and antagonises all American political enemies (The Spanish, The Germans, The Japanese, The Soviets, The Vietnamese, The Muslims, The Iraqis, The Russians, etc.)

Are there any authors who have done any remarkable critiques on this?

    This is a history/sociology question, not philosophy, at best and at worst it's a transparent attempt to ask more 9/11 conspiracy questions which you have a history of asking. Whatever this question is, it's not on topic on this site. – Not_Here Jul 25 '18 at 7:35

    conspiracy for you. Reality for me. This is just some shit-ass American forum and all left wing questions are removed. Very American indeed... – PbxMan Jul 25 '18 at 7:39

    There is a reason why academics in general and philosophers in particular tend to be "left-wing". This question is far too presumptuous in terms of what is fact and what not - something serious philosophers would never consider, even though I am pretty sure there is literature critical of biased media. Apart from that, StackExchange is not a forum and while surely comprising the majority, the userbase is much more plural than "American" - including half of the moderators. – Philip Klöcking Jul 25 '18 at 8:28

    dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2741688 Google Scholar is your friend. Type scholar.google.com into your browser, search for whatever you like (e.g. biased media coverage) - profit. – Philip Klöcking Jul 25 '18 at 8:37
