VIDEO: DEMANUFACTURING CONSENT-MEDIA POWER

FROM MEDIA ROOTS


Demanufacturing Consent: Abby Martin on Boiling Frogs Podcast

Demanufacturing Consent is joined by the founder and editor of Media Roots and host of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin.
Guillermo and Abby discuss a wide variety of issues and news stories, focusing on the psychological and sociological effects of media in the digital age; the power of media as both a form of societal control and a revolutionary tool; the inevitable extinction of the dinosaur media and the new wave of citizen journalism filling the void; why “doom and gloom” sensationalism is destructive and the need for true independent alternatives.
