'Even Better than Being Informed'

Satirical news and media literacy

Abstract

This chapter engages with three pertinent and interrelated changes impacting journalism in concert: the shifting experiences of public trust in the media; increasing audience involvement in journalism; and a growing public understanding of media techniques. I propose we try to understand the shifting nature of the news landscape not by taking journalism as a starting point, but by looking at journalism through the changing lens of its audience(s). More specifically, the idea of media literacy is a helpful concept we can use to begin deciphering the changing audience—journalism relationship.
