Manufacturing Our Media

In "Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media", Herman and Chomsky speak of how the elitist minority spread there propaganda by dominating the general publics means of entertainment and information amongst things and uses this outlet to spout there political views, moral beliefs and religious ideologies. As stated by Herman and Chomsky, these major media conglomerates work in a system of filters that assure there dominance over our everyday life, all while profiting in the process. They also state that although these corporations are separate entities, they work with one another to assure that they remain at the forefront of American media.
