It's The Media, Stupid...

Will the Fouth Estate ever have its comeuppance?

Does media matter?

The defining issue of our time is not the Iraq war. It is not the "global war on terror." It is not our inability (or unwillingness) to ensure that all Americans have access to affordable health care. Nor is it immigration, outsourcing, or growing income inequity. It is not education, it is not global warming, and it is not Social Security.

The defining issue of our time is the media.
Another reason why teaching creative writing in the context of new media art and digital rhetoric has some value: it enables the media consumer to see-through the conservative media narrative being projected by the traditional corporate-owned, government-sanctioned, talking robots and supplicant scribes.
