In an energetic fusion of images and ideas, this two-volume video explores the political life and ideas of the controversial author, linguist and radical philosopher, Noam Chomsky. Highlighting Chomsky's analysis and criticisms of the media, Manufacturing Consent focuses on democratic societies where populations not disciplined by force are subjected to more subtle forms of ideological control. Shocking examples of media deception permeate Chomsky's critique of the forces at work behind the daily news.
