On September 21, 2007, I had the extraordinary opportunity to interview Noam Chomsky in his office at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The interview will be aired on Venezuelan and Latin American television as part of the promotion for the III International Book Fair in Venezuela, which this year focuses on the theme: "United States: Is Revolution Possible?" The transcription of the interview follows.

The second problem in the world is the one which allows the corruption to flourish...The Mainstream Media, which is totally controlled by the government, and corporate interest. We do not make this claim lightly, without reason and personal knowledge.
During one phase of our undercover investigations we worked in a high level government public relations office. We helped prepare the daily official government propaganda articles which were hand delivered to the news wire services which were in turn picked up by major newspapers and medias worldwide and reported as truth. What was reported contained basic information with a government spin designed to confuse and intimidate the general public into supporting the corrupt government.
THE ONLY STORIES ON THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA WHICH ARE TRUTHFUL ARE THOSE WHICH ARE INSIGNIFICANT!!!
This practice is standard procedure and is never questioned by the Mainstream Medias or the audience....This is the problem which must be addressed or the government will always control the people and the problems of government control are only beginning...it will get much worse!!!!!

09/17/07 "ICH" -- -- Monday, September 17, 2007- Did you see George all choked up? In his surreal TV talk on Thursday, he got all emotional over the killing by Al Qaeda of Sheik Abu Risha, the leader of the new Sunni alliance with the US against the insurgents in Anbar Province, Iraq.
Bush shook Abu Risha's hand two weeks ago for the cameras. Bush can shake his hand again, but not the rest of him: Abu Risha was blown away just hours before Bush was to go on the air to praise his new friend.
Here's what you need to know that NPR won't tell you.
1. Sheik Abu Risha wasn't a sheik.
2. He wasn't killed by Al Qaeda.
3. The new alliance with former insurgents in Anbar is as fake as the sheik - and a murderous deceit.

Caracas, September 10, 2007 (venezuelanalysis.com) – Flanked by Bolivian President Evo Morales, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez warned of a plan financed by the United States to derail the democratically elected government of Bolivia, including a plan to assassinate Morales, said Chavez during his weekly television program Aló Presidente.
“I hold responsible the president of the United States, George Bush, for what could happen to compañero Morales, because they are conspiring against the government, including to kill him,” he said.
During the broadcast Chavez also spoke of his offer to mediate peace negotiations in neighboring Columbia between the government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia (FARC), saying he would travel to territory controlled by the FARC, if necessary, "I'm willing to go into the deepest part of the largest jungle to talk with Marulanda.""I have faith that we will succeed. Nobody said it would be easy,” he added.
