Concision: No Time for New Ideas

Top of page

This video focuses primarily on the implications of the structure and format of television, especially the consequences of concision, and how these factors can shape the messages of the medium. In addition, other issues, such as how democracies handle dissenters, and how the mainstream media have treated the challenges of Chomsky's media critiques are explored. The media construct reality, and in the conclusion we see the author participating in that very process.
