Lost in Media examines collectively the ethical issues that have arisen in media-driven everyday life and that will arise as paradigm shifts occur on a global scale. Films, television, and new media often serve the globalization aims of a capitalist society as they function to socially reproduce the hegemonic norms, values, and styles of the larger society. Chapters in this book use critical theory to look at issues of free market fundamentalism; journalism's erosion of communication of truth; public relations ethics of perception management; yielding self-censorship in the media; entertainment media pedagogically cultivating consumerism and docility; music and morality; misrepresentation of resistance movements; ethics of spectator-ship; and the transformation of everyday ethics.
