Insightful expose of US media "self censorship"
25 January 2002 | by (Toledo, OH) – See all my reviews

As another user noted, this film has much in common with the much longer "Manufacturing Consent." Studs Terkel hosts this hour long documentary about how the US media's corporate backing effectively creates a culture of "self censorship." This is one of those films that should make you angry and motivated to do something. As Jefferson noted, a free press is imperative if democracy is to work.
