Though Control In Democratic Societies
By Noam Chomsky
Necessary 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 foreigh and domestic that portrays the media as the servant of free speech and democracy.
