About this documentary
According to American linguist and political activist, Noam Chomsky, media operate through 5 filters: ownership, advertising, the media elite, flak and the common enemy. A production by #MediaTheorised, an online project by Al Jazeera English’s media analysis show The Listening Post. Narrated by Amy Goodman, Executive Producer of Democracy Now! Designed and animated by Pierangelo Pirak.
#MediaTheorised has some interesting and easily digestible short documentaries and interpretations on the structure and workings of the media. Worth a look, as the news is easily manipulated these days. And knowing that the media are often paid by the same conglomerates that they ought to be investigating, there is a definite and untenable conflict of interest. Watch out how you consume your media.
