One of the benefits of being on summer break is the reintroduction to normal society aka Daily Show and The Colbert Report. Through their analysis, I get some great info lit pieces. If you haven’t been watching lately, I recommend the following viral items:
- Jon Stewart’s “We’re Here, We’re Queer, Get Newsed to It” – about 1:30 into the clip, Jon covers the issue of authority (or lack of) for certain websites
- Stephen Colbert’s review of the Wikipedia impact of Sarah Palin’s retelling of Paul Revere’s midnight ride, as summarized by funnyordie.com
For more info lit centric pieces, enjoy classic Colbert:
- Wikiality – the Wikipedia defined factual reality
- Wikilobbying – to agree upon what we just agreed upon, we can also
- Great News – what’s the value of a journalism degree?
Perhaps, I have found a new approach for sparking web evaluation discussions…..
