Contrary to the usual image of the press as acrimonious, obstinate, and ubiquitous in its search for truth, Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky shows how an underlying elite consensus largely structures all facets of the newsThey skillfully dissect the way the market and economics of publishing significantly shape the form of the newThey reveal how questions are formulated and topics chosen, and the contrast of double the underlying accountability standards of free elections, freedom of the press and government repression between Nicaragua and El Salvador, between the Russian invasion of Afghanistan and the American invasion of Vietnam; between genocide in Cambodia, under a pro-U.S. government, and genocide under Pol PotWhat emerges from this pioneering work is an account of how the propaganda of our mass media, and how we can learn to read them and see their function in a radically new way
