Renee Hobbs examines how audiences respond to media messages that are "almost true," like the Mike Daisey monologue on Apple computers and the KONY2012 video by Jason Russell. Audiences engage with works that blend journalism and art because they must be active interpreters who use conversation, relationships and sharing to develop coherent meanings. Controversial "almost true" messages make evident the relevance of media literacy key concepts and the value of supporting critical thinking, analysis and creative multimedia composition activities in the context of K-16 education.
This talk, "How Audiences Respond to the Merging of Art, Online Journalism and Advocacy" was delivered at the Symposium on Online Journalism at The Ohio State University's Moritz College of Law on March 30, 2012.
