Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media

Contrary to the usual image of the press in its search for truth, this book depict how an underlying elite consensus largely structures all facets of the news. It is an account of how propagandistic our mass media are, and how we can learn to read them and see their function in a radical way. It reveals how issues are framed and topics are chosen.
