Foundations of Media Studies

Media studies can be boiled down to four books to read. 

Chomsky & Herman, Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media

Barthes, Mythologies

Debord, The Society of the Spectacle

Horkheimer & Adorno, Dialectic of Enlightenment  

These are not necessarily easy to read and they only provide the foundation of understanding in the field but that foundation is invaluable.
