Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media

In this documentary, linguist and liberal political activist Noam Chomsky presents his thoughts on how the mass media works against democracy's best interests. The corporations and investors controlling the outlets where most people get their news, he argues, selectively choose what to cover for reasons having to do with personal agendas and retaining power, rather than what's best for readers and viewers. After discussing examples, Chomsky gives suggestions on how to be a well-informed citizen.
