I’m only half way through this book and already it’s one of the most concise and penetrating critiques of the Mass Media in America that I’ve ever read. He digs at the roots that sustain our public consciousness. Excellent overview of the function of the mass media today – utterly vindicated by Wikileaks revelations and the role of the corporate media during and post-Wikileaks.
This book was required reading for a class I am taking. Aaron rated it really liked it Apr 17, May 24, P. Parenti is most known for his criticism of capitalism and American foreign policy. Parenti at his best. I better start getting them on tape! If I had to choose I think I’m more apt to read Parenti’s books about history than media.
