I am worried that the corporate media will prevent anyone from succeeding Chomsky when he passes away. It is difficult for me to imagine a worthy successor, but if there is one (I am sure there are) we will not hear anything about it in the corporate press.
Chomsky views, while being ‘spot on’, are still avoided at all costs by the MSM. Though Chomsky is a superstar outside of the U.S. and around the globe, he is basically an unknown in the U.S. being far less recognizable than second rate soap opera actors or fringe professional athletes. This is a testament to how successful corporate media has been in dumbing down the populace. Two thirds of Americans are flat broke, yet they still elect the corporate candidates year in and year out at our own peril.
Until someone like Noam can get the same amount of airtime as the NRA or Russiagate, the majority of Americans will live in the dark.
