How To Create Responsible Social Criticism: PBS


The recent matter of Sam Pepper's "social experiment" videos has inspired a lot of discussion and debate. Here at Idea Channel, we thought we'd take this opportunity to talk in this video not specifically about Sam Pepper, but about media in general, and it's ability to comment on serious social issues. If Sam Pepper's video successfully critiqued assault, then why all the uproar? If media can be potentially hurtful, then how can we best comment on social issues? Watch the episode and tell us what you think! 

Once again, the PBS Idea Channel has a posted a video worth watching,  and discussing (especially with media-using students). Every moment with your audience matters.
