Audience Reviews for Manufacturing Consent - Noam Chomsky and the Media

Chomsky's landmark exposition of the media and how they choose to depict stories is still relevant today. However, he misses the mark on a key element: how the media can be driven to cover stories based on profit rather than some grand conspiracy. A visual masterpiece nonetheless.
