and Media Consolidation
A documentary that deserves to be watched and re-watched...
This 1992 documentary film Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media observes the political life and ideas of the intellectual, activist, & linguist Noam Chomsky. The documentary created by Mark Achbar and Peter Wintonick is largely based on Chomsky's earlier book, Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media, co-written with Edward S. Herman.
