Noam Chomsky, the internationally acclaimed linguist and political radical inquires into the nature of the media in a political system where the population cannot be disciplined by force and thus must be subjected to more subtle forms of ideological control. Specific cases are illustrated, primarily taken from U.S. media. Mr. Chomsky considers how the media might be democratized in order to offer citizens broader and more meaningful participation in social and political life. Originally broadcast in 1988, these lectures also include a panel discussion with prominent Canadian journalists.
