Bill Moyers: Interview with Noam Chomsky (1988)

Part 1   Part 2                                

Noam Chomsky believes that propaganda is to democracy what violence is to a dictatorship. But he hasn’t lost faith in the power of common people to speak up for the truth. He is known around the world for his revolutionary work on the structure of language, studies he has persued at MIT since 1955. But he is most controversial as a freelance critic of politics and power

In this wide-ranging interview conducted in 1988, Chomsky talks with Bill Moyers about his book, Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media, and discusses the role of propaganda in a democracy.
