Media literacy has to do with possessing a critical understanding of the nature of media texts. It is about exploring the manner in which representations are normalised in a society. As the chapters in this book illustrate, language plays a crucial role in the construction of reality in media texts. A critical understanding of this is gained by looking at the discourse of media through multiple perspectives. This way of reading media texts encourages reflection and careful consideration. This book advances a greater understanding of how the media works in producing meaning and constructing reality. The researchers of media texts who have contributed chapters to this book advocate the reading of such texts through a critical lens that encourages mindful media consumption. Researchers, academics and students of media, language and discourse analysis who are interested in studies that uncover hidden meanings in media texts, particularly Malaysian media texts, should find this book of interest.
