Naom Chomsky- Manufacturing of Consent

An interesting film that I recently watched to gain a greater knowledge of the undercover workings of mass media was “Manufacturing of Consent” by Naom Chomsky. Here it is below.

“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.”

This was a valuable documentary as it is something which is not greatly discussed.
