Yet Another Example…

Just posted about media literacy in a postmodern world. Browsed a few of my favorite blogs and found a post from Assorted Stuff about a report from Indiana University indicated that The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is just as substantive as the typical nightly news program.

For me, the most important part comes right at the end: “The 2004 elections saw the highest turnout among voters among age 30 in more than a decade. A 15,000-student study released Sept. 22 by the Knight Foundation and J-Ideas found that young people are turning more than ever to programs like Stewart’s for political information.” Media literacy at work…but how many schools filter The Daily Show website rather than using it to discuss current events?
