This is a 1992 documentary which researches the political life and thoughts of Noam Chomsky, a language specialist, activist and an intellectual. Made by two Canadian movie producers, Mark Achbar and Peter Wintonick, it develops the thoughts of Chomsky's prior book, Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media, which he co-composed with Edward S. Herman.

The film exhibits and delineates Chomsky's and Herman's proposal that corporate media, as benefit driven organizations, have a tendency to serve and further the motivation of the diversions of prevailing, world class gathers in the general public. A centerpiece of the film is a long examination of the historical backdrop of The New York Times' scope of the Indonesian control of East Timor, which Chomsky says embodies the media's unwillingness to condemn an associate of the first class.

Until the arrival of The Corporation (2003), made by Mark Achbar, Jennifer Abbott and Joel Bakan, it was the best gimmick narrative in Canadian history, played dramatically in more than 300 urban communities around the globe; won 22 honors; showed up in more than 50 global film celebrations; and was show in more than 30 businesses. It has additionally been deciphered into twelve dialects.
