Manufacturing Consent
The Political Economy of the Mass Media
Noam Chomsky, Edward S. Herman

Read this to see through the media filters that protect the powerful, maintain the status quo, and leave Americans blind to the reality of contemporary America. You've always sensed the media was screwed... find out just how screwed it is.
—Recommended by Chad, City Lights Books

An absolutely brilliant analysis of the ways in which individuals and organizations of the media are influenced to shape the social agendas of knowledge and, therefore, belief. Contrary to the popular conception of members of the press as hard-bitten realists doggedly pursuing unpopular truths, Herman and Chomsky prove conclusively that the free-market economics model of media leads inevitably to normative and narrow reporting. Whether or not you've seen the eye-opening movie, buy this book, and you will be a far more knowledgeable person and much less prone to having your beliefs manipulated as easily as the press.
