Description

How what we see and hear - as well as what we don't see and hear - is greatly determined by those who control the communications world, thus few of us know of things except as how they are depicted in the news.  Demonstrates how the news media distort important aspects of social and political life and why - usually not an accidental act nor merely the result of the complexity of actual events and the honest confusions of poorly prepared reporters.
