Adolescents and media literacy

Adolesc Med Clin. 2005 Jun;16(2):463-80, xi. doi: 10.1016/j.admecli.2005.02.011.


In the face of media industry consolidation, fewer people control media content which makes it harder for parents and citizens to know the research about media-related issues, such as video game violence, nutrition, and sexual risk-taking. Media literacy offers a popular and potentially successful way to counter the misinformation that is spread by Big Media public relations.
