Things I Wish I Could Show My Students – Charlie Brooker “How to report the news”

One of my favorite media personalities is Charlie Brooker. He is smart, observant and very funny. He has a large body of work across several different mediums. First of all I would like to show you a short clip he made for a TV series called Screenwipe.

It is a great analysis of techniques used in reporting the news. If you enjoy this I suggest getting a hold of his TV series How TV Ruined my Life. 

The second clip I am going to share is a trailer for his recent miniseries Black Mirror, a dark commentary on the use of technology that leaves you feeling very uncomfortable. It had my husband and I talking about it for days.  Any things you wish that you could show in class but not sure if admin would approve?
