anything form Chomsky is amazing as well... Hegemony or Survival, Failed States,Media Control...
Chomsky is awesome .....Media Control would be good in light of Michael Moore's <correct IMO> outburst on the media being controlled. It's a light read.

Lots of good books mentioned here .... maybe we should sticky this thread

I have a few issues with Moore but I thought his outburst the other day was right on the money too. The one unfortunate thing about it though is it cast Wolf Blitzer in the eyes of a lot of people as some kind of a victim. My wife for one thought he (Moore) was way over the line even though she basically agreed with him. I don't know though--I thought it might have been nice to see a media shill admit that the media was used.

The last thing I want to do on these boards is start some sort of Michael Moore Argument, but I saw Sicko (Which my employer made a cameo appearance in... No I don't personally Deny people coverage or Call people looking for money, Infact I probably help insure some of your children) and I thought it was spot on as far as the horror stories they focused on in the beginning of the film. They really didn't surprise me at all.
So I give mike props for ripping wolf a new one cause I have hated wolf blitzer ever since katrina. A few weeks following the storm when CNN was swarming in the frenzy of the situation they had a guy from the Nat'l weather Service on talking about another up coming hurricane that looked like it was going to hit New Orleans again and wolf was eatting up:

Wolf: Is this storm going to be as DEADLY as katrina!?!?
Weather Guy: No, it will not be nearly as strong
Wolf: Are you sure its not going to KILL Hundreds and cause havoc on the crumbled city?!!
Weather Guy: Nope, the eye won't even hit the city directly

....Or something to that effect. After that, I've decided that wolf blitzer is nothing but a drama-seeking puke. Like CNN, Hate Wolf Blitzer.
