    Reading this book is like listening to a diatribe from your favorite professor You think he is probably right in his conviction that the media is controlling public opinion of the bewildered herd, but he doesn t present much empirical research Must be nice to have tenure This is an important book for anyone studying media theory but I don t think the theories hold quite as much water in the digital age Post modern media is fragmented and thus public opinion is not as easily controlled by major [...]

    Read July 2017Shorter, and readable than the last Chomsky book I read, I found Media Control thoroughly chilling He calls the majority of the population of America, though it can apply anywhere else as well the bewildered herd the majority of which are by nature peaceful, and happy to not go to war with other countries The media s job therefore, is to stir up patriotism with vague slogans like support our troops which of course no one will be against, and to highlight atrocities committed by th [...]
