|Organizer/Author||World Centric - Aseem Das|
Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky demolish one of the central tenets of our political culture, the idea of the “liberal media.” Instead, using a systematic model based on massive empirical research, they reveal the manner in which the news media are so subordinated to corporate and conservative interests that their function can only be described as that of elite propaganda. Says Noam Chomsky, “If you want to understand the way a system works, you look at its institutional structure. How it is organized, how it is controlled, how it is funded.” 60 minutes, 1997.
The film will be followed by an open discussion led by a speaker to be announced.
