Critical Media Literacy and Fighting Media Monsters
We’ve all either been one and/or experienced one: a media monster. A media monster is a figurative state when we interact with media without considering the consequences to ourselves or others. We may think we know the impact of liking or sharing an article based on headline alone, but do we understand the collective impact of these activities on our shared understanding of the world? Do we have the skills to accurately discern fact from fake news and post-truth? More important, how do we stop our media monster tendencies and help others do the same? Critical media literacy (CML) is key. Learn how to integrate CML skills into your personal and professional activities, including the important role of CML in the PR industry.
