17. GU sedates Chomsky
Edited on Fri Nov-04-05 08:29 PM by occuserpens
One good way to oppose Chomsky's views is to arrange a discussion between him and a specialist in certain area on concrete issues. Instead, Emma Brockes tries to challenge him all by herself. The result is painfully miserable: the journalist cannot really concentrate on anything, as for Chomsky, he is effectively half-asleep. Either Professor does not care to use basic debating techniques and make the discussion lively - or Ms. Brockes deliberately sedates him and presents as a dupe.

Even Chomsky's response is under the same spell. Instread of helplessly lamenting on misrepresentation, he should better work out a few brief points he really wants to communicate to the readers regardless of media obfuscation.
