Considering how enamoured you are with Chomsky, I don't think you can claim your views are any more independent. You are buying in to an ideology as much as the rest of us are, it just happens to be a different one. Chomsky’s agenda may be anarchic, but it’s still an agenda.

The media CAN be used as a propaganda machine, it is not automatically such. Naturally there tends to be systemic bias, but that can be enhanced and twisted with intention. To call all media "propaganda" is a little naive and churlish.

I live quite easily without the corporate media.

The media limits the way we view the world, and instead of giving enriching concepts to have a fulfilled life, it limits our field of vision. Almost everything presented has such a narrow scope of possibility.

It is the media that makes things rigid.
I think you've got the wrong end of the stick. The point isn't that the media should be abandoned - in fact, Herman and Chomsky have both recommended alternative media forms - but that it should be reformed in the interests of the population.
