Manufacturing Consent is a political documentary that explores the ideas of the career linguist and self proclaimed libertarian socialist, Noam Chomsky. In the film, they discuss the propaganda model of the profit driven US media industry which is owned by a small number of people and is there to serve the special interests. Chomsky uses historical events and the parallel coverage of these events to show how the media portrayed the events in a positive and highly partial manor as to manipulate public opinion.
