  1. This is one more great and informative writing about Media Literacy. It’s really helping me comprehend what is going on in the media world that is influencing those who drink its kool aid, a main reason why America is falling apart. Media used to be so honorable but now telling half truth’s for what they perceive as their “common good.” Oh, is it ok to tell a lie for the common good? Is it really a sin anymore to tell a lie?
