Incredible Animation Summarises Noam Chomsky's 5 Filters of the Mass Media Machine

29

For decades, Noam Chomsky has been the agent provocateur when it comes to critiquing the US mainstream media. He co-authored ‘Manufacturing Consent’, a seminal work on mainstream journalism and its role in the mechanics of power.

According to Chomsky, media operate through 5 filters: ownership, advertising, the media elite, flak and the common enemy.

It stands to reason that Amy Goodman should narrate this piece: she is the founder Democracy Now!, a US news broadcast which provides viewers with an alternative kind of journalism, available on the internet and 1,400 radio and television stations worldwide.
