Address Comments To:
Of significance, Chomsky maintains an impassioned hatred of America's institutions and national identity, and through his endorsement of individuals such as Robert Faurisson, a leading intellectual proponent of the claim that the Nazi Holocaust is a "Zionist Hoax," has degraded his own reputation. The fashion in which this film chronicles Chomsky's views make it difficult for a viewer to see the systematic approach to his arguments. Chomsky himself constitutes the sole constant in the film as it fades in and out of artistic clips, interviews and historical scenes. Finally, Chomsky's conclusions lead one to ask a host of questions which MANUFACTURING CONSENT fails to answer.
