Summary
A collection of 20 analyses of the media coverage of current events that Chomsky (linguistics and philosophy, Massachusetts Institute of Technology) wrote for the journal Lies of Out Times , which survived only from January 1990 to December 1994. The events have changed, but the patterns should still be recognizable on the evening news. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
