“Manufacturing Consent, The Political Economy of the Mass Media” Book
By Noam Chomsky and Edward S. Herman
The timeless and invaluable analysis of the media-propaganda industry. Perhaps more valuable now than ever, with lazy cynics declaring that the ‘mainstream media’ is all ‘fake news for the sheeple’ (and then proceeding to dissapear down the rabbit hole of unsubstantiated, unedited, internet podcasts). There is of course every reason to be a skeptic when it come to the media, but understanding how and why it works and behaves the way it does, (and learning to read between its lines), is by far the smartest option. Better the devil you know, afterall.
