Truth, Fiction and Media Literacy
Critical thinking, critical discourse and — frankly — critical understanding of our media-laden world are essential, universal skills. Today, people question the certainty of information. Truth appears to be unclear. It has even become the new norm to debate what the word “truth” actually means. The last is especially disturbing because it offsets the balance of what we believe about our world and society. This balance has been threatened even further by media giants who may not consider the consequences of their actions.
