Media Literacy & Choosing Sides. But whatever role we historically played, and however ineffectual our strategy, what we have been aiming to support over the past couple of centuries is creativity and free will.

Or, alternatively, media literacy was born in the pamplet wars of the English Civil War, or the tracts of the Reformation, or... well, pick a perspective, pick a pundit, and run with it.
