Manufacturing Consent

This film showcases Noam Chomsky, one of America’s leading linguists and political dissidents. It also illustrates his message of how government and big media businesses cooperate to produce an effective propaganda machine in order to manipulate the opinions of the United States populous. The key example for this analysis is the simultaneous events of the massive coverage of the communist atrocities of Khmer Rouge regime of Cambodia and the suppression of news of the US supported Indonesian invasion and subjugation of East Timor.

    My book, “Eyes Wide Shut: An Enigma” is fiction based upon actual events. There is a parallel. The reality of the public has been skewed since the beginning. Caesar set up an efficient provincial administration to govern the vast territories; he published his history The Gallic Wars. In this “history,” he skewed for his own benefit. Nothing has changed. Nixon was known to mold events to suit his reality…
    The inequities of supply and demand and big business response reflects the needs of governments… Government is a business. It has a huge advantage. It is not for profit…

    Please do not use Documentary Heaven to promote you badly researched, badly written conspiracy theory bullshit.

      @6bbcfc1f13995f2233186c024fc0ef17:disqus perfect example of somebody who has been totally manipulated. You are a victim of a system that controls you into believing you are free. This is exactly the sort of thing that should be on Documentary Heaven. At least it gives an alternative to the view that the mass media presents to us. Surely to have a healthy and solid appreciation of the world, you must at least consider what this documentary suggests. You don’t need to necessarily accept it, but at least you have the option. Ironically your suggestion that this should be censored is the exact attitude being decried. You’re either totally ignorant, in denial or a paradoxical humorist.
