Chomsky certainly has written some on propaganda but really not all that much. The famous book, "Manufacturing Consent" was a bit more reflective more of Herman's work.
There are far better sources (and far more interesting) than Chomsky which will help you grasp the scope of propaganda.
If you think that I have made such a comment after watching "only one Chomsky lecture" that reflects an insecurity on your part and an inability to discuss the topic with any intelligence. Which takes us back to the original topic now doesn't it?
Hopefully that's not the case.
I'm definitely not as informed as I should be on some of these issues (hence the Chomsky lectures haha) . His political discussion is mainly in the realm of foreign policy and such, but it does tie in to some of the points you are making. What are some better sources?
I agree with much of your views, especially that the educated who read any mainstream news source are brainwashing themselves. Constant focus on DJT is an example of this.
As another had mentioned, social media is becoming a very scary way to spread propaganda
