Noam Chomsky is a blazing critic of just about every mainstream sacred cow on the planet. If its war for security, corporate power, free trade or complicit media, Noam Chomsky is at its throat, and has been for a long time.
An Old Testament-style angry prophet with a huge intellectual pedigree. Hes 81 now, and says hes never seen anything like todays politics. The anger and the fear.
Hes listening to talk radio. Hes listening to the Tea Party. Hes watching. Hes thinking. We hear whats on his mind. -Tom Ashbrook
