Orwell Rolls in His Grave

My Media Literacy Theory class is really interesting. We're geared towards heavy reading of philosophy and essays on theory along with documentaries and times of discussion and conversation. We watched this documentary the other day about media publication and selection. This video comes in at a mere 3 hours and one minute. Its worth it at least to skim through it and hear some of the points of view.


Orwell Rolls in His Grave "Could a media system, controlled by a few global corporations with the ability to overwhelm all competing voices, be able to turn lies into truth?..." This chilling documentary film examines the relationship between the media, corporate America, and government. In a country where the "top 1% control 90% of the wealth", the film argues that the media system is nothing but a "subsidiary of corporate America." Director: Robert Kane Pappas
