Well it is no news that mass media of USA have always been a propaganda machine in hands of big cooperations and pentagon. But examples in this book really can change the mind of those that disagree. Great book for those wanting to know that TRUE.

the book was recommended to me by a history teacher and i have been reading and skimming through it. the book is about the filters information has to go through before it becomes the final product you see,hear, read in the media. its what you get when you rely on the government usually nothing but nothing. Can't wait to crack on NPR, Fox News Network, and CNN
