Greetings All
Over the last few weeks I have been thoroughly enjoying a number of documentaries off youtube on the influence of media and looking forward to others. Most of them happened to be produced by the MEF/Media Education Foundation.
http://www.mediaed.org/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi?display=home is the link for the site where these are available

Here are some of the titles (they cover everything from children, to porn, to voilence, gender, race, hiphop, etc etc)

Big Bucks, Big Pharma
Reel Bad Arabs
Tough Guise
The Killing Screens
bell hooks: Cultural Criticism
Killing us Softly - Portrayal of women in the media
Generation M
Hiphop:Beyond beats and Rhymes
Micky Mouse MOnopoly   --race, gender as portrayed in disney films
Hijacking Catastrophe --on 9/11
The Price of Pleasure ---- this one is one pornography

I do hope ones find this useful. This is the kind of material i would like to bring into my Social Studies classes.
