BBC Interviewer gets Schooled about Media Propaganda by Noam Chomsky 5
UC-JyyNhji1-wxC7DIMWVK8g

The BBC interviewer tries to argue that the media never promotes propaganda, or has any type of medium intrinsic bias; he gets well and truly screwed on every point he tries to make. The irony is that Andrew Marr's total belief that he's not spewing out propaganda or is too estblishment leaning is exactly the reason why the BBC gave him his job.

"If you believed something different you wouldn't be sat here" Andrew Mars face after that devastating line says it all.

What's funny is that Marr turned out to be exactly what Chomsky was describing in the years to follow. His sickening praise of Tony Blair post Iraq war was vomit inducing.

Man, Chomsky was so polite, and so very brutal as he took the interviewers' preconceptions apart. So much fun to watch. But I have to give Marr credit: an American interviewer faced with such a direct assault on his beliefs would have shouted Chomsky down. Marr at least gave Chomsky the chance to express himself. That's supposed to be what an interviewer does, but it doesn't happen much in American mainstream media.

Marr doesn't seem to grasp how easily his positions are demolished. But that's the point - If he could understand, he wouldn't be on TV.

"I'm not saying you're self censoring, I'm saying that if you had different ideas you wouldn't be sitting here." If this reporter wasn't so clueless his fabric of reality should be falling apart right there.

BBC reflects the arrogance and intellectual emptiness of many Brits. I am glad Chomsky had to humiliate this stupid interviewer, though in a polite way.

If I had to go up against Chomsky, heaven forbid, I would stay far away from geopolitics, propaganda, and especially transformational grammar and try to keep it in my own court. I would try to steer the debate to pie crust- although I might stand a chance at drop piano voicings, when to block or not to block in beach volleyball, a6 Slav defence or backgammon opening replies at different match scores.

10:50 - The moment the chirpy, upbeat Marr realised his whole life had been a lie. Noam Chomsky is phenomenal in the way he can calmly and brilliantly deconstruct an entire global edifice of lies. What a beacon of intellect.

“The key element
of social control is the strategy of distraction that is to divert public
attention from important issues and changes decided by political and economic
elites, through the technique of flood or flooding continuous distractions and
insignificant information.”

That was an awesome interview. Chomsky was very precise in his assessment the gentleman interviewing him could not even get what he was saying. The interviewer was trying to figure out how could Chomsky think the press is censored when I can say whatever I want and publish anything i want! How! The answer was very fundamental and subtle: I am sure you believe everything you say, if you didn't you wouldn't be here!

Articulate man.
