This article calls for a partisan media literacy. It begins by building on Kellner and Share’s typology of critical media literacy, ending with their own, which Ford labels “radical democratic media literacy.” Yet in our particular age we need more than criticality, we need partisanship. To make this case, the author turns to Russiagate and the repression of independent media and radical activists it’s facilitated.
