De-Manufacturing Consent- The Adversarial Billionaire, Media Consolidation & False Idols

Guillermo Jimenez Presents Mark Mondalek

On this edition of De-Manufacturing Consent: Guillermo is joined by Detroit-area writer and BFP contributing author, Mark Mondalek. We discuss Mark's latest article on BFP, titled "And an Oligarch Shall Lead Them: Omidyar, Greenwald & First Look Media’s Attack on the Future of the Press." We consider various issues throughout our conversation, including the shifting media landscape; First Look's consolidation of "independent voices"; the lack of criticism directed at Pierre Omidyar over his connections to the national security apparatus, the White House, and USAID; Edward Snowden and the "hero vs. traitor" false dichotomy; and much more.
