Media Control: The Spectacular Achievements Of Propaganda (2005)


On this original recording, Chomsky delivers a provocative lecture exemplary of the media analysis that is his signature. Arguing that “propaganda is to democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state,” Chomsky sketches the triumphs of U.S. propaganda from the Wilson era through the first Bush administration.

Written in the wake of Gulf War I, this insightful lecture touches on the machinations of Bush Sr.’s war propaganda. As such, Media Control is a timely and haunting reminder of propaganda’s proven hazard: the repetition of our most nightmarish history.

The Chomsky talks on this blog- AMAZING. Thank you Croaker you little cracker.

EVERYONE should either download and listen to these talks or remain uninformed and therefore barred from commenting on anything ever again (except maybe the size of Justin Bieber's cock).

BELIEVE muthaf#!kas.
