That's exactly what he says. Perhaps you've never watched the film.TheHonestTruth said:He leaves out the part about it being a giant brainwashing machine that isnt actually leaning right or left but is actually a brainwashing distraction that pumps up this showy hyperpartisanship to get you all to take sides blindly to think there is a real difference between the two parties... and both democrat and republican politicians want this because it gives every one of them job security.

To me, it's always seemed like Chomsky represents Chomsky. He's a libertarian socialist, which I suppose would be far left, on a left-right scale, though. From watching Manufacturing Consent, he doesn't seem to think it's either right or left, and that the right-left fights that go on are fodder, a part of a divide and conquer strategy for the genuine powers, which are the conglomerate corporations, which are neither right nor left, but are just ruling powers who's only ethic or platform are to maintain as ruling powers.TheHonestTruth said:I havent, but I have watched other films that featured him for 30+ minutes discussing the corporate media which he says isnt left but is right, which is partly true, the people who run the media are far right for financial reasons. Chomsky he makes some great points, but I think that hes part of the hyperpartisan problem because he represents the far far left.
