Mark Crispin Miller (born 1949) is professor of media studies at New York University,[1] and the author of the book: Fooled Again, How the Right Stole the 2004 Elections. He is known for his writing on American media and for his activism on behalf of democratic media reform. His books include Boxed In: The Culture of TV, Seeing Through Movies, and Mad Scientists, a study of war propaganda.

He graduated from Northwestern University with a BA in 1971, Johns Hopkins University with an MA in 1973, and a Ph.D. in 1977. His parents, Jordan and Anita Miller, are the founders of Academy Chicago Publishers.

Political commentaryEdit

According to Miller's book, Fooled Again, the 2000 and 2004 U.S. Presidential election were stolen. Miller presents evidence supporting his contention that the outcome of both elections was altered and controlled by a small minority. He states that the American voting populace can no longer assume that their votes will be accurately assessed, and that the installation of electronic voting machines in state after state is a fundamental flaw in the U.S. electoral system. He appeared in the 2004 documentary Orwell Rolls in His Grave, which focuses on the hidden mechanics of the media, its role as it should be and what it actually is, and how it shapes (to the point of almost controlling) U.S. politics.

He is a signatory to the 9/11 Truth Statement.[2][3] Interviewed by the New York Observer website, Miller said anyone using the conspiracy theory description "in a pejorative sense is a witting or unwitting CIA asset".[4]

Social commentaryEdit

Crispin has argued that a handful of multinational corporations that are in control of the American media have changed the focus of youth culture away from values and more towards commercial interests and personal vanity.[5]
