Abstract

As a journalist working in a university I very aware of the power of the idea of media literacy. I am sure that to exploit the social potential of new media and the knowledge economy, that we need more of it. But I now fear it has become a reflex piece of policy rhetoric to replace real thinking about how people use information.
