For all who enjoyed our earlier clip of Noam Chomsky and Andrew Marr, here is one of our favourite excerpts from the highly recommended "Manufacturing Consent". The very format of conventional media itself makes it almost impossible to challenge mainstream narratives.

Saudi Arabia’s air strikes killed at least 20 civilians in Yemen yesterday. Think the mainstream media is going to start clamoring for regime change in Riyadh on “humanitarian” grounds? Fat chance.

“I’m not saying your self censoring. I’m sure you believe everything you’re saying". For those that saw the reaction to 's comments on media groupthink and wanted to post this clip edited and with subtitles... here it is, edited and with subtitles.... You're welcome.

Noam Chomsky on the “just cause” argument of ultra-right jingoists like Robert Kaplan: “you can read that in the Nazi archives, too.”

Owen, to what extent do your remarks apply to the Guardian? And what are your plans for writing about all this in ?

What Are 'Assad Apologists'? Are They Like Those 'Saddam Apologists' Of 2002? "And surprise surprise, now that the war drum is beating louder than ever for Syrian blood, the phrase 'Assad apologists' is enjoying a massive uptick."

Yesterday, an Israeli sniper killed a 15-year-old boy: the *4th child* to be killed by Israeli forces since rallies began on March 30. Where are the big front-page stories in the 'MSM'? Lead item ? via

Ludicrous, and also sinister. confronts : ‘So you’ve been identified by the [British] government in this research as being a Russian bot. Are you?’ What McCarthyite madness is this?

We all make errors of judgment. I’ve def made mine. But this was an expression of the opportunistic formula Mehdi put on display today at the Intercept: attacking the left from “inside” the left to win establishment points. There’s little I find more contemptible. HT

In 2013, appealed for a Daily Mail job: “I could therefore write pieces for the Mail critical of Labour and the left, from ‘inside’ Labour and the left... I’d like to write a piece for the Mail making the left-wing case against abortion.”

'No one tells me what to think'. It's almost as though 'MSM' journalists have never read or listened to Noam Chomsky. 😂

This is exactly it. You learn by accretion (and subconsciously) what can and cannot be said. So you learn you can say "Russian expansionism" but you can't say "US imperialism". You can say "Russia-backed Assad regime" but you can't say "US-backed Saudi regime". It's insidious.

“No one tells me what to think”. I’ve heard this so many times and it’s self-deception. No-one needs to. Journos easily assimilate what is in their interests to believe and end up self-censoring without thought. The culture rewards obedience.

Are they significant on the left? If so, it should be easy to identify them and call them out on the specifics of their hero worship. That Hasan does neither says a great deal about the poverty of his argument. It looks more like a smear.

Who is offended? Anyone who rejects the mocking smear of Fisk with his 'mysterious doctor'. Hasan named no other names, but readers can guess from comparable pieces in The Times, Huffington Post and BBC. Assad is the devil incarnate, the US and allies merely 'meddling'. Terrible.
