How the Mainstream Media Monetizes Anger

Americans are watching more media than ever before, but trusting it less. Why and how is that possible? Journalist Matt Taibbi reflects on those questions in a piercing analysis of the mainstream media system, drawing on the work of Noam Chomsky and Edward Herman, as well as many decades of experience in the trenches of the press. Taibbi discusses why we should think of the media as a consumer product.
