Chomsky is often quoted as opposing public relations but in fact,he is much more critical of the role played by the media themselves. Herman and Noam Chomsky show that, contrary to the usual image of the news media as cantankerous, obstinate, and ubiquitous in their search for truth and defense of justice, in their actual practice they defend the economic, social, and political agendas of the privileged groups that dominate domestic society, the state, and the global order. This documentary successfully converts the insightful, well-written scholarly book Manufacturing Consent and condenses it into a popularly appealing documentary that is probably interesting to a much wider audience.

What emerges from this groundbreaking work is an account of just how propagandistic our mass media are, and how we can learn to read them and see their function in a radically new way. Whether those policies come from nominally liberal or conservative administrations, Chomsky asserts time and again that they ultimately serve the needs of elites at the expense of masses of people at home and abroad who pay the very dear cost of perpetual wars over resources and markets. This Edition features an exclusive ten-years-after video interview with Chomsky.

We fund the suppressors with money and weapons, eradicating as much of the local population as we can even into the hundred of thousands until there's no dissent left. Their new introduction updates the Propaganda Model and the earlier case studies, and it discusses several other applications. It is an account of how propagandistic our mass media are, and how we can learn to read them and see their function in a radical way.

. In his 2013 book , Chomsky leaves little room for equivocation in his assessment of the role elites play in maintaining a state apparatus that suppresses popular movements: If it is plausible that ideology will in general serve as a mask for self-interest, then it is a natural presumption that intellectuals, in interpreting history or formulating policy, will tend to adopt an elitist position, condemning popular movements and mass participation in decision making, and emphasizing rather the necessity for supervision by those who possess the knowledge and understanding that is required so they claim to manage society and control social change. Among the seminal figures in linguistic theory over the past century, since the 1960s Chomsky has also secured a place as perhaps the leading dissident voice in the United States. These five filters combine to limit the scope and depth of news reporting, and the bulk of the book proves this with case studies. This excerpt is but one minute example of Chomsky's fiercely independent stance against abuse of power in all its forms and his tireless advocacy for popular social movements.
Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the modern world and who wants to consider how the future may be steered in a better direction.

I find history and politics quite interesting, but the authors belabored their points as an academic might, understandably, need to far beyond the patience of a person reading the book in his spare time might be willing to tolerate. Herman and Noam Chomsky show that, contrary to the usual image of the news media as cantankerous, obstinate, and ubiquitous in their search for truth and defense of justice, in their actual practice they defend the economic, social, and political agendas of the privileged groups that dominate domestic society, the state, and the global order.
