Noam Chomsky’s backpocket classic on wartime propaganda and opinion control begins by asserting two models of democracy—one in which the public actively participates, and one in which the public is manipulated and controlled. According to Chomsky, "propaganda is to democracy as the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state," and the mass media is the primary vehicle for delivering propaganda in the United States. From an examination of how Woodrow Wilson’s Creel Commission "succeeded, within six months, in turning a pacifist population into a hysterical, war-mongering population," to Bush Sr.'s war on Iraq, Chomsky examines how the mass media and public relations industries have been used as propaganda to generate public support for going to war. Chomsky further touches on how the modern public relations industry has been influenced by Walter Lippmann’s theory of "spectator democracy," in which the public is seen as a "bewildered herd" that needs to be directed, not empowered; and how the public relations industry in the United States focuses on "controlling the public mind," and not on informing it. Media Control is an invaluable primer on the secret workings of disinformation in democratic societies. From the Audiobook Download edition.

'A towering intellect ... powerful, always provocative.' Guardian'A superb polemicist who combines fluency of language with a formidable intellect.' Observer'Must be read by everyone concerned with public affairs.' Edward SaidNecessary Illusions explodes the myth of an independent media, intent on uncovering the truth at any cost. Noam Chomsky demonstrates that, in practice, the media in the developed world serve the interests of state and corporate power - despite protestations to the contrary. While individual journalists strive to abide by high standards of professionalism and integrity in their work, their paymasters - the media corporations - ultimately decide what we view, hear and read.Rigorously documented, Necessary Illusions continues Chomsky's celebrated tradition of profoundly insightful indictments of US foreign and domestic institutions and tears away the veneer of propaganda that portrays the media as the servant of free speech and democracy.

PMChomsky's backpocket classic on wartime propaganda and opinion control has been updated and expanded into a two-section book, and redesigned following the acclaimed format of his Open Media anti-war bestseller, 9-11. The new edition of Media Control also includes ''The Journalist from Mars,'' Chomsky's 2002 talk on the media coverage of America's ''new war on terrorism.''Chomsky begins by asserting two models of democracy - one in which the public actively participates, and one in which the public is manipulated and controlled. According to Chomsky ''propaganda is to democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state,'' and the mass media is the primary vehicle for delivering propaganda in the United States.

ions of U.S. Policy Chomsky observes the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights while chronicling how the foreign policy of the US too often differs from its rhetoric.
