About the Project

Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky describe the media as businesses which sell a product (readers) to other businesses (advertisers). In their propaganda model of the media they point to five 'filters' which determine what we read in the newspapers and see on the television. These filters produce a very narrow view of the world that is in line with government policy and business interests.
Anyway,kindle it is their latest attempt to bypass these filters.
To use it,just go here and place the bookmarklet to the bookmarks toolbar.Then whenever you'd like to send the page you're reading to your Kindle, click the bookmarklet.
I converted this page with it and the outcome looks like this

For those without a Kindle, you can download epub, mobi and pdf files.
